WINNER / NONPROFIT
Michael Robb is energetic and passionate about serving the Pittsburgh region. He is the executive director of three nonproﬁt organizations: Center for Community Resources, Alliance for Nonproﬁt Resources and the Nonproﬁt Development Corp. Over the course of six years, CCR, a nonproﬁt providing support and services throughout its community, has grown from one organization into three and from 52 employees to 139.
This success is a result of Robb’s visionary ideas. He has converted his vision into reality through his strong leadership skills and his ability to manage people, ﬁnances and systems. He thinks on his feet, uses human and ﬁnancial resources to overcome obstacles and doesn’t let a “no” stop him when he knows it’s the right direction for the organization.
While CCR cut its budget this year, Robb continued to look for ways to improve the organization. CCR has been expanding programs outside of Butler County. Alliance is expanding its grants and marketing department. NDC is coordinating a housing initiative for low-income, ﬁrst-time home buyers in Butler County.
Robb currently oversees 59 programs available to more than 180,000 residents throughout the region. He pursues programs and services that aren’t currently being offered to ﬁll gaps and expand service lines. He also looks to ﬁx those that are not operating efﬁciently.
Robb consistently applies three principles as the business model for each of the agency’s programs: provide a quality service, operate a program in a supportive environment and administer a program at an affordable cost.
CCR is currently pursuing agencywide compliance and accreditation to strengthen its infrastructure. When completed, the organization will be able to offer its plan to other agencies to enhance the entire nonproﬁt community. ■
