Dear 180 Degree Stakeholders,

I am pleased to announce that after an extensive search, Dan Pfarr has accepted the position of CEO at 180 Degrees. Dan has been the Executive Director of The Bridge for Youth since 2010. Prior to this, he held significant positions at Bolder Options and Catholic Charities of St. Paul and Minneapolis. He has a MSW in Clinical Social Work from the University of St. Thomas/College of St. Catherine and B.A. in social Work from University of St. Thomas.

In addition to his outstanding work at The Bridge for Youth, Dan is the Chair of the state-wide Mental Health Protocol Team (Safe Harbors), a National Board Member for MANY (Mid Atlantic Network for Youth), a member of the National Advisory Council, True Colors Foundation, Forty to None Project, United Way Council of Agency Executives and Treasurer for Youth Services Network. He is also the former President of Youth Intervention Program Association. Dan will be officially joining 180 Degrees in early September.

I also want to take the opportunity to express my gratitude to Richard Gardell, who has transformed 180 Degrees into the organization we see today. Through Richard’s leadership, 180 Degrees has experienced extensive growth and has made a positive impact on the lives of more people than we could have ever imagined a few short years ago. I also want to thank Richard for his collaboration in the search process and preparing 180 Degrees for the transition.

Additionally, a special thanks is in order to Walt Flynn and the search committee for their diligence and commitment that resulted in a successful search.
