CHARLOTTE, N.C. (10/18/21) – SHARE Charlotte, a one-stop-shop for connecting with 500+ Mecklenburg County nonprofits, today promoted former Marketing Director, Melissa Hovey, to Managing Director of the nearly 10-year-old organization. 

“The pandemic gave us the opportunity to revisit every aspect of SHARE Charlotte from our mission and staffing to who and how we serve our constituents,” said SHARE Charlotte Board Chair, Colleen Brannan. “From these strategic planning exercises, an obvious leader emerged in Melissa and the Board could not be more pleased to promote her as the organization continues to evolve.”

Hovey has served as SHARE’S Marketing Director for the past three years leading large-scale community-wide giving campaigns which have influenced more than $31M in value given to Charlotte nonprofits and inspired over 29K new donors. She previously worked as a Marketing, Sales, and Business Development Director with Dell, Inc. in Austin for 20 years.  In 2015, she moved to Charlotte and, in an effort to get to know her new city, she started volunteering with local nonprofits which eventually led her to SHARE Charlotte.

“SHARE Charlotte has been on a mission to make it easy to Do Good for nearly a decade now,” said Hovey. “I am excited for the opportunity to lead this organization into the future while remembering why we exist, to be the engine that powers social good in the Queen City.”
