Empower Success Corps Acquires Executive Service Corps of Northern New England

Union provides expanded services to nonprofits in northern New England

BOSTON, July 25, 2018 — Empower Success Corps and Executive Service Corps of Northern New England announced today they are joining forces to offer an expanded array of program services to nonprofits in New Hampshire, Maine and Vermont. Empower Success Corps will acquire Executive Service Corps of Northern New England (ESC of NNE) and operate under the Empower Success Corps name.

For more than 35 years, Empower Success Corps has helped nonprofits build capacity through consulting, talent-matching, and professional development programs. Services are provided by experienced volunteer professionals and are available at a highly affordable rate. As of today, nonprofits and public agencies across New England will have Empower Success Corps as a resource.

“This acquisition is an exciting opportunity for strategic growth. As a result, we will be able to pool resources, expand services, and help nonprofits across all of New England operate more effectively to meet the needs of their communities,” said Julie Crockford, Executive Director of Empower Success Corps.

Since 1999, ESC of NNE has been working with nonprofit organizations in Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont to improve their effectiveness by providing affordable management consulting. Their experienced professionals volunteer their time and expertise to provide capacity building solutions to help nonprofits grow.

Lynn Post, Vice Chair of the ESC of NNE board, said, “Nonprofits in NH, ME and VT will benefit from expanded services, more consulting resources, and the support of a large, vibrant organization with a shared mission. Our volunteer consultants gain access to expanded project and training opportunities. Our consultants will continue working with northern New England nonprofit clients, plus we’ll be able to serve more nonprofits and grow our roster of consultants. We expect the transition to be relatively seamless.”  Lynn Post will serve as Interim Director of the Empower Success Corps NNE office.

In the new organization, the NNE office will be responsible for business development, client support, and volunteer recruitment and management in New Hampshire, Maine and Vermont. The main office of Empower Success Corps will be responsible for consultant training and operations including bookkeeping, contract administration, CRM and communications. This structure will increase efficiencies and expand services and opportunities for both clients and consultants. David Ellis and Maggie Ford, formerly of the ESC of NNE board, have been elected to serve on the Board of Directors of Empower Success Corps.  The expanded business will serve more than 100 nonprofit organizations throughout New England each year. “With this acquisition, we envision a region in which all nonprofits have access to quality consulting and other services, so they can better accomplish their missions and improve the lives of residents in Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Vermont,” said Ms. Crockford.
