Billy Pieper will step up as PCA-Hawaii’s new Board Chair beginning January 2, 2017. Billy succeeds Chip Hammond, who is stepping aside after 15 years at the helm.
I am honored to be the new Board Chair for Positive Coaching Alliance-Hawaii and excited to have the opportunity to have Chip’s continued mentorship as an invaluable member of our Board of Directors, which will assure our progress moving forward.
-Billy Pieper, PCA-Hawaii Board Chair
Billy further remarked, “I’m all-in for this collaborative approach and incredibly optimistic about the road ahead for a number of reasons. First, my predecessor, Chip, and my fellow board members have successfully helped steward our Chapter to this moment of strong opportunity. We have also added extraordinarily accomplished board members Tim Motts (CEO, Boys & Girls Club Hawaii) and Andrew Rosen (CEO, Hawaii State Federal Credit Union) to our senior leadership in thoughtful positions of Vice Chair. We are completely set up to push even harder for positive impact.”
