Tiffany Drummond Armstrong joins Enactus as Chief Development Officer and brings to the company more than 20 years of experience leading comprehensive multi-stream development programs. She has an extensive positive record of empowering teams at local, state, and national levels to achieve their goals. Tiffany thrives in mission-driven organizations and is fueled by a deep desire to improve the quality of life for others. She holds a master’s degree in Public Administration from North Carolina State University and Certificates in Nonprofit Management from North Carolina State and Duke Universities. Tiffany is active in her community and with her alma mater, the University of North Carolina at Asheville, having most recently served on the Foundation Board of Directors. Currently, she serves on the YWCA Board of Directors and is the President of the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP) Western North Carolina Chapter.
“It is an honor to join Enactus and support sustainable, life-changing innovation through student-driven social entrepreneurship,” Tiffany says. “I’m eager to partner with donors, corporate partners, community leaders, and academia to propel these young leaders forward in their current and future work to solve the world’s biggest problems.”
Kathryn Atchley joins Enactus in a newly created role, Manager of Foundation Relations. A component of the company’s new three-year strategic plan is strengthening its resiliency by diversifying its revenue stream. Kathryn will serve a key role fostering strategic partnerships with foundations that support the Enactus mission to educate, inspire, and support young people to use innovation and entrepreneurship to solve the world’s biggest problems.

She continues, “As Enactus grows as a global learning network with a goal to annually educate 100,000 young leaders, Tiffany and Kathryn will be instrumental in engaging partners who support our mission with funding, mentoring, and educational opportunities.”
