Joining the agency in March of 2007, Albert A. Fisher brought over 25 years of university and nonprofit experience to Community Partnerships. With proven leadership success, high standards, and a long-term commitment to nonprofits, he places a high premium on individual and organizational integrity.
A graduate of Duke University, where he worked for more than 20 years in various management roles, Bert has brought innovative ideas and new perspectives to an established organization with a long record of success. His strengths include strategic planning, fiscal management and budgeting, personnel development, operation and utilization of technology, fundraising, and communications.
Bert recognizes the importance of a viable safety net to help support people in need, and is an ardent advocate of accessible, high quality services in all communities. At the same time, he understands the critical need for sound fiscal responsibility and works hard to ensure that Community Partnerships manages its finances in an exemplary manner.
