News release from SAVE:
SAVE announces Christian Ulvert as new chairman of Board of Directors; former chair Brian Adler named as SAVE Foundation Board chairman
Today, SAVE is pleased to announce that Christian Ulvert, president and founder of the political consulting firm EDGE Communications, will assume the chairmanship of the organization's Board of Directors effective immediately.
"I am humbled by the vote of confidence by my colleagues on the Board and excited about the work ahead on behalf of South Florida's LGBT community," said Ulvert, in response to the announcement. "We have celebrated many great victories over the last couple of years, but we have much work to do to ensure that we achieve full equal rights and marriage recognition in Florida."
Ulvert will bring with him to the helm of SAVE a diverse background in strategic communications, media management, campaign management, and public affairs. SAVE looks forward to implementing his vision for the organization over the coming election cycle.
Simultaneously, departing chairman Brian Adler, of the law firm Bilzin Sumberg, will continue to serve the local LGBT community by assuming the chairmanship of the Board of Directors of SAVE Foundation, the educational arm of the organization. He is eager to put his new ideas for SAVE Foundation to work in the months ahead.
"I believe the change in leadership will start a new era here at SAVE," said SAVE Executive Director, Tony Lima. "With our new chairman Christian and Foundation chairman Brian, and with the kickoff of our 2014 effort on the horizon, I couldn't be more optimistic for the future of equality for our local LGBT community."
