Achieve Escambia Hires First Executive Director

September 28, 2016

Greg Voss has been named director of Achieve Escambia; Pensacola’s new cradle to career collective impact effort. Voss has more than 25 years of experience working in non-profit management.

Most recently Voss served as the executive director of Big Brothers Big Sisters of the 7 Rivers Region in Wisconsin. Voss has also held leadership positions with the American Red Cross and Little Brothers-Friends of the Elderly of the Twin Cities in Minnesota and is a graduate of the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse.

“We are excited to hire Greg to serve as Achieve Escambia’s director,” said Debbie Calder, executive vice President of Greater Pensacola Operations for Navy Federal Credit Union and current chair of the Achieve Escambia Leadership Council. “Greg has extensive experience as a strong non-profit leader and brings a passion and enthusiasm that will help fully launch this cradle to career effort.”

Achieve Escambia is a collective impact partnership of leaders and stakeholders in education, non-profit, business, faith, community, civic and philanthropic sectors committed to aligning community resources so everyone is empowered to achieve success. The partnership shares a vision and strategy for improving cradle to career outcomes through a structured, evidence based, long-term approach. As a result of community input, Achieve Escambia will focus its initial efforts to the area of school readiness.

“I’ve been impressed by the collective support and strong commitment Achieve Escambia has received from the community,” Voss said. “I am proud to be part of such an exciting effort to not only improve career readiness, but improve lives.”

Voss will officially begin working with Achieve Escambia on October 24.

Achieve Escambia was founded in 2016 when members of the Pensacola business community identified a need to better support and supplement the career readiness efforts taking place across Pensacola. The group’s mission is to improve education and workforce outcomes for the community; every child, every step of the way, cradle to career.
