Erinn Rowe, the former Harvest Hope Food Bank Board Chair, has officially joined the organization as CEO effective today. Erinn had served on the Harvest Hope board since 2015. From 2019 through the end of 2020, she led the board as chair, helping to hire Wendy Broderick. While still grieving the sudden passing of Wendy, the organization is grateful Erinn can hit the ground running and continue to carry out the mission of serving others when they need us the most.
For those of you who haven’t met Erinn, she joins the team having worked with Bank of America for the past 10 years as the Senior Treasury Sales Analyst for Commercial Banking at Bank of America Merrill Lynch. In this role, Erinn and her team worked with companies that had revenue ranging from $5 million to $2 billion annually, proactively providing relevant insights and integrated financial solutions to help those companies succeed.
Before banking, Erinn owned and operated a franchise of Young Chef’s Academy, a children’s cooking school which promoted healthy eating and skill-based learning for kids and adults of all ages. Erinn and her family live in the Midlands of South Carolina.
“Serving others has always been important to me,” says Rowe. “During my volunteer time on the Harvest Hope board, it was incredible to watch the team serve their fellow citizens with such dignity and compassion. From the 1000-year flood to the recent pandemic, they continue to show up during the times our neighbors need help the most. I am honored to join them in building a hunger-free tomorrow as CEO.”
Please join us in welcoming Erinn to her new role as Harvest Hope CEO. And on behalf of the entire Harvest Hope family, thank you for your continued support, especially throughout the past year.
Together, Harvest Hope Food Bank is building a hunger-free tomorrow across South Carolina.
