SANCA Leadership Changes

SANCA is pleased to announce that Dr. Octavia Graham has been appointed by the Board of Directors to serve as SANCA’s Interim Executive Director. Octavia has worked with SANCA since 2017, most recently as the Director of Staff Success (HR), and she has served on the Board of Directors since February 2021. She is extremely passionate about the work of our organization, and is committed to seeing SANCA thrive. We look forward to the fresh perspective that Octavia will bring, and are grateful for her leadership during this period of transition.

Octavia will replace John Tannous, who has resigned as SANCA’s Executive Director to pursue other opportunities in business consulting. We are grateful to John for his hard work and success in stabilizing SANCA’s financial outlook, and for guiding our organization through the difficulties associated with the pandemic. We wish JT the best in his future projects and endeavors.
