WASHINGTON, DC — The anti-hunger and poverty organization Share Our Strength has hired Anne Filipic as its new Chief Executive Officer (CEO), after a national search conducted by Koya Partners. Filipic, a proven strategist and leader with extensive experience building and growing organizations through dynamic periods, will take the helm of the nonprofit as it works to meet the changing needs of children and families in the U.S. and fulfill its mission to end hunger and poverty in the U.S. and abroad.

In this role, Filipic will work with Share Our Strength’s Board of Directors, Executive Team and staff to shape and implement the organization’s vision for the future, while building on its rich history and demonstrated success. She will lead a multi-faceted strategy to ensure children have access to meals through school and community providers, and their families have food resources. Under her leadership, Share Our Strength will expand its focus to prevent hunger by addressing the root causes of poverty, especially building economic opportunity for families. 

“Share Our Strength’s tireless commitment to make sure no child goes hungry, coupled with its emerging focus on creating paths to economic opportunity for families is a powerful combination for lasting change,” said Filipic. “As we navigate the changing needs of children and families, this is a unique opportunity to join a thriving organization that is poised to take its success to the next level.” 

Filipic joins Share Our Strength from the White House, where she served as Assistant to the President and Director of Management and Administration. In this role, she oversaw the operational infrastructure of the White House and built the most diverse White House staff in history.

Filipic has a history of work to improve the lives of families in the U.S. and around the world. As Chief Program Officer at The Obama Foundation, she developed global programs focused on civic engagement and leadership development. She also oversaw the integration of two major initiatives, My Brother’s Keeper and The Girls Opportunity Alliance, into the Obama Foundation. 

Previously, Anne led Enroll America, a national healthcare coalition designed to support Americans in enrolling in and retaining healthcare coverage made available through the Affordable Care Act. Enroll America’s work supported a net increase of over 20 million Americans gaining healthcare coverage in under four years.

“We have an unapologetically bold vision for the future, one that demands a next generation leader who will steer our ship with creativity, empathy and accountability,” said Billy Shore, Share Our Strength’s Founder and Executive Chair. “Anne is the right person at the right time. Her experience successfully leading mission-driven efforts at dynamic times will be a critical part of our success.”

Filipic joins Share Our Strength as of September 6th, 2022. Her predecessor, Tom Nelson, will retire after a decade of service at the organization.
