Leadership
Leadership
One of the general manager’s, a member of the senior management team, promotes Blackbaud’s company values by ensuring strong cross team working with other divisions in the business. He gives freedom to his designers and developers to create ideas and new tools that the company can promote to their customers. Where things go wrong his team improve them e.g. the implementation of a better customer support system, continued refinement of the user experience on their core product. And if all of this wasn’t enough a number of his team have lead their own fundraising efforts over the last year, not least the BBE activity at Centrepoint sleep out last winter.

Being an international company with offices all over the globe, Blackbaud are lucky to be able to offer their employees ‘international placements’ as rewards for outstanding performances.
