Holderby named Executive Director of American Red Cross chapter

Updated:

Springfield, MO — Nigel Holderby has been named the Executive Director for southern Missouri as the American Red Cross realigns boundaries within the state to most efficiently meet its mission goals. The appointment is effective immediately.

“I am excited to remain as part of the team here in southern Missouri and look forward to continuing my service to the communities we serve,” Holderby said.

The Red Cross changes will result in increased assistance to people depending on the organization after a disaster. Some consolidation of regions and chapters is under way in an effort to achieve the Red Cross mission more robustly and consistently across a wider area. More detailed information is expected before the end of the year.

Holderby has been interim Executive Director since September after Regional CEO Debi Meeds left to become President/CEO of the United Way of the Ozarks.

“This is really an inspiring time as the Red Cross vision re-energizes the grass root efforts and further empowerment of volunteers,” she said.

Holderby began as a volunteer with the Chapter in 2007 and has been the Regional Chief Communications Officer for the past three years. A lifetime Missouri resident, Holderby graduated with her bachelor's from Missouri State University and recently earned her master's in communication from Drury University. She is a member of the National Red Cross Advanced Public Affairs Team, deploying to several national disaster including Hurricane Sandy.

Holderby started her career with AT&T, where she advanced from service representative to management during her seven years with the company. Prior to joining the Red Cross, she owned and operated a small business managing a team of virtual employees. Holderby continues to serve as the communication contact for the chapter as part of her assigned responsibilities.
