Please join us in welcoming Fred Nystrom as Executive Director!
We are happy to announce that long-time LEO supporter and community activist, Fred Nystrom, has been chosen as our Executive Director. This addition of an executive director will allow LEO to create greater organizational structure and increase its ability to serve its clients.
Fred has an extensive background in media and fundraising with both nonprofit organizations and businesses. He is very much involved in the Issaquah community, serving previously as a board member for the Issaquah Chamber of Commerce and the Issaquah Schools Foundation. During his 30 years of involvement with the Rotary club of Issaquah Nystrom has held club and district positions, and has been an ardent supporter of LEO's efforts in the community, especially with the yearly Challenge Series Races that are sponsored by Rotary.
"I am excited and looking forward to new challenges," Nystrom said. "This position allows me to follow my heart and help in advocating for individuals with special needs."
