Miracle Foundation Promotes Leslie Beasley as Chief Executive Officer
With the promotion of Beasley to CEO, a powerful and effective partnership is reinforced between Beasley and Founder, Caroline Boudreaux.
When communicating this announcement, Miracle Foundation's Founder, Caroline Boudreaux, said "It gives me immense pleasure to see us formalizing her role as CEO since Leslie has been serving in that capacity over the past year. The organization has scaled and flourished greatly during this period. For me personally, she has been a true partner in this incredible journey, liberating me to spend more time "outside" on advocacy for children and on the Miracle Foundation with partners and global agencies and also with donors. As such, I will continue to remain as active as ever in my current role as Founder."
Miracle Foundation has seen a year of enormous growth, doubling the size of the team and expanding to 10 states across India as well as kicking off the rollout of a technology platform to address inefficiencies in the US Foster system. The organization is on the front lines, using its proprietary THRIVE scale to improve the lives of more than 10,000 orphaned and vulnerable children, training 2,300 government officials and childcare workers and partnering with powerhouses like UNICEF to affect systemic change. Beasley said she is "honored to be a part of such important work and looks forward to using all that the organization has accomplished in the last 20 years to springboard to the next level."
Beasley has more than 25 years of non-profit and entrepreneurial experience. Most recently, she was the Founder and CEO of Open Arms (http://www.mrcaustin.org/

I feel we have the perfect leadership team between Caroline's vision and passion and Leslie's leadership and ability to execute flawlessly. I am looking forward to seeing their partnership really scale this organization to the next level."
