Paul Shoemaker formerly served as SVP Seattle’s Executive Connector. Anyone who’s met him knows why. If you’re out to change the world, he’s there to connect you to the people and organizations on that same journey. (He’s also the boss, so he does a little executive directing as well.) Paul is committed to work in the community, serving on the boards of several organizations. He is the Founding President of Social Venture Partners International and currently sits on their Board of Directors, as well as the Board of Partners for Our Children.
Shoemaker is published his first book August 2015, Can’t Not Do, that shares what he’s learned over the last 17 years and provides a roadmap for each of us to find that compelling social drive that can help change the world. Past work includes a term as Board Treasurer of Grantmakers for Effective Organizations (2001-2007), as well as board service for the Microsoft Alumni Foundation (2008-2013) Children’s Alliance in Seattle (1996-2000) and Treepeople in Los Angeles (1987-1990).
