The following is a post from Diana Hand, GuideStar’s senior marketing manager.
On Thursday, GuideStar hosted a farewell reception honoring our former CEO, Bob Ottenhoff, at the National Press Club. Everyone was in great spirits sharing memories and shedding a few tears as they said goodbye to Bob. Guests in attendance included Bob’s wife, Faith, and two sons, Elliott and Patrick, GuideStar Founder Buzz Schmidt, new GuideStar CEO Jacob Harold, former colleagues from his time in public broadcasting and radio, and friends in the nonprofit sector. GuideStar wishes Bob the best of luck as he continues his journey – he will be missed and always remembered. Check out some photos from the event!
