In the news: Elaine Ng
TSNE MissionWorks (formerly Third Sector New England), a $50 million organization that provides management consulting, shared operational services and capacity building support to other nonprofits, is proud to name Elaine Ng as its new chief executive officer. Ng has been serving as Interim director of operations for the organization for two years and, in June, she will succeed Jonathan Spack, who retired in 2016 after 34 years at the helm of TSNE MissionWorks, and Lee Swislow, who has been serving as Interim CEO.
As a 25-year veteran of the nonprofit and education sectors, Ng has a passion and commitment for organizations that shift the paradigm of equity and access. Most recently, she held the positions of strategic planning director for Special Education for Boston Public Schools, and executive director of the Boston Chinatown Neighborhood Center.
“It is a privilege to assume leadership of TSNE MissionWorks at a time of such exciting growth and possibility for the organization,” Ng said. “We will continue to build on our great work as we position ourselves to become even more relevant to our partners and to the nonprofit community.”
Founded 60 years ago, TSNE MissionWorks operates the NonProfit Center in Boston, provides fiscal sponsorship for more than 80 nonprofits across the country and offers consulting and trainings that serve a wide range of nonprofits pursuing organizational excellence. TSNE MissionWorks also has several grant-making programs aimed at building diverse and inclusive organizations and communities.
“I believe deeply in our mission of strengthening organizations and leadership in the nonprofit sector,” said Ng. “For the groups we work closely with that means developing practices that allow our clients to become more adaptable, resilient and inclusive as we build towards equity.”
The appointment follows an extensive, nationwide search that resulted in three finalists after 350 prospects were reviewed by the search firm BoardWalk Consulting in Atlanta, GA.
