Tides Welcomes Janiece Evans-Page as CEO
Following an extensive search process, Tides’ Board of Directors is thrilled to announce the appointment of Janiece Evans-Page as Tides new Chief Executive Officer. Her lifelong passion for social and racial justice and her track record of transformational leadership make her the perfect choice to lead Tides as the organization enters its 45th year of pioneering innovative solutions to address society’s most critical issues.
Janiece brings a strong background that includes more than two decades of leading business and social impact initiatives — from a 20-plus-year career at Hewlett-Packard to her most recent role as VP of Global Philanthropy and Sustainability at Fossil Foundation, she has proven her commitment and ability to affect social change within, and through, large systems.
On the heels of a transformative year, she joins Tides with a national reckoning on social justice, ravaging wildfires brought on by climate change, and COVID-19 laying bare deep inequities in health care, education, economic opportunity, and beyond — clearly Tides’ work and that of our partners is more crucial than ever before. As Tides broadens and deepens its commitment to accelerate the pace of social change, she will lead the organization with dynamic tools, deep expertise, novel collaborations, and innovative ideas.
“As a dynamic changemaker, innovative intrapreneur, and purpose-driven leader, Janiece has invested nearly 30 years driving strategic initiatives that optimize economic and societal value,” said Jason Wingard, Co-Chair of Tides Network Board of Directors. “She has consistently led successful change efforts that inspire and advance philanthropic and social impact. The Tides global community is privileged and honored to welcome Janiece as its next CEO.”
Janiece will join Tides as CEO on January 4, 2021.
