The role of shelters has changed dramatically to meet the evolving needs of our community.  This shift is reflected in the work that HSSV does today to support pets and people in Santa Clara County and beyond.  Looking ahead, this also creates new opportunities to save lives, keep families together, and change the game for animal welfare.

Kurt joined HSSV as President in January 2020 after previously serving as Chair of the Board of Directors. He is thrilled to lead a talented and passionate team that is saving lives, keeping families together, and advancing animal welfare.

Prior to HSSV, Kurt spent 20 years helping companies create sustainable growth. As an executive coach, he worked with business and nonprofit leaders to design effective organizations, build high-performing teams, and develop their own leadership skills. As a management consultant at Oliver Wyman, Kurt led engagements for Fortune 500 clients in media, technology, healthcare, and life sciences. He also has operating experience in marketing, sales, and product development at industry-leading technology companies including HP/Agilent and Tektronix.

Kurt received his MBA from Harvard Business School and his bachelor’s degree in electrical and computer engineering from Rice University. Kurt is eternally grateful to have been rescued by his wife Charu and their adopted dogs.
