Denver, CO—Social Venture Partners Denver (SVP Denver), a program of The Denver Foundation, welcomes Rob Kellogg as Executive Director. Kellogg assumed leadership of SVP Denver following the departure of longtime leader Pat Landrum, who retired on August 24.
Kellogg, who moved to Denver from Washington, DC in 2007, has served in leadership and entrepreneurial positions across a range of sectors, including international development, brand marketing, polling and market research, corporate governance and financial regulation, and public education. Most recently, he held senior management roles at Institutional Shareholder Services, Inc., based in Rockville, MD, and the Colorado Education Association in Denver. Kellogg is a native of San Francisco.
“The SVP Board is thrilled to announce Rob as our new Executive Director,” says Andy Marshall, chair of the SVP Denver Board of Directors. “Rob brings a strong and diverse background in business, government, and nonprofit sectors to the role. This experience, coupled with his infectious enthusiasm to make a difference in our community, positions him well to lead our organization into the next phase of our development. Rob inherits a strong organization from Pat Landrum, who has done an amazing job over the past seven years. We wish her all the best in her retirement.”
“This is an exciting time to be living in Denver,” says Kellogg. “At the same time, the city’s growth has intensified challenges faced by many of our communities. SVP intends to harness the city’s energy and ambition to usher in a new era of engaged philanthropy in the Denver community that is both inclusive and impactful.”
Landrum served as Executive Director for seven years. Her career spanned more than 40 years in nonprofit management, community organizing, and civic engagement in California and Colorado. Following a break, she plans to return to SVP Denver as a member.
“SVP Denver has been a vital partner with nonprofits in Metro Denver by helping them build their long-term organizational capacity so they can more effectively satisfy their missions and elevate their impact in the community,” says Landrum. “I’m proud to leave the organization on firm footing and excited to see what the future holds for the partnership.”
