Chief Corporate Officer, Big Brothers Big Sisters of New York City
In 1993 Jeff Elgart decided to volunteer at Big Brothers Big Sisters of New York City. Some 27 years later, Elgart is still connected to his “little brother,” but his involvement with the storied organization now plays out on a much broader scale. After a long career, ranging from media sales to nonprofit administration, in 2013 Elgart became the chief corporate officer for the BBBS, with responsibility for the daily operations of the Workplace Mentoring Program. In this multidimensional role, Elgart is tasked with expanding the roster of participating corporate partners, developing cause-related marketing programs and overseeing day-to-day operations of the professional skills-building program, which boasts a 98% on-time high school graduation rate and a 95% college-enrollment rate.
