DALLAS (January 27, 2021) – The Center for BrainHealth®, one of the country’s leading centers for pioneering brain research and translational science, has hired Kevin Armshaw to serve as director of development. This key position will elevate the Center’s nonprofit mission to unlock human potential through improved brain health and performance by attracting a strategic, broad base of philanthropic partners.
“Our mission is urgent, and it is relevant to ordinary people around the world – if we can raise brain capacity for all individuals by even 1%, this will translate into enormous new opportunities and skills that can help us thrive and advance,” said Sandra Bond Chapman, PhD, founder and chief director of the Center for BrainHealth. “Kevin brings the experience and drive we need to cultivate lasting relationships with both institutional and individual donors.”
Prior to joining the Center for BrainHealth, he was senior consultant for TAG-Strategies, an Omaha, NE based fundraising consulting firm, and served Creighton University for six years as director of mission advancement for the Institute for Priestly Formation. He brings a wealth of knowledge, experience and expertise in building fundraising capacity and cultivating a philanthropic culture. Throughout his career, he has helped raise over $500 million to further nonprofit missions.
“The Center for BrainHealth has an incredibly compelling case to bring brain health to the broader community, and it is backed by three decades of research and translational science,” said Armshaw. “I look forward to sharing the hope and promise with partners who can help us reach the global community.”
“The science is clear, and its application as a protocol that brings measurable results is well established,” said Roger Gault, who chairs the Center for BrainHealth’s advisory board. “Kevin will be instrumental in bringing philanthropic partners alongside to help scale this critical endeavor and reach underserved populations everywhere.”
