Douglas Pick - FeedMore

FeedMore’s board of directors announced on November 5, 2012, that Douglas “Doug” Pick has been named chief executive officer of FeedMore effective November 26, 2012. Pick succeeds Fay Lohr, who is retiring after serving as president and CEO of FeedMore since 2008 and, prior to that, as president of the Central Virginia Food Bank from 1998 to 2008. “As FeedMore continues to grow to meet the needs of hungry children, families and seniors in our community, we sought a leader who had direct experience in helping multidimensional organizations achieve their goals,” said Mark Smith, chairman of the board at FeedMore. “Doug is an outstanding choice and has the full support of the board to lead FeedMore into a new era during these trying economic times.”

Pick has led his own leadership consulting company, Travrse, since 2011. Prior to this role, he spent 12 years as an executive with Capital One in Richmond, Va., where he was highly regarded for his ability to drive complex,
corporate-wide change. His leadership positions included: creating the company’s project management discipline; co-founding an international software subsidiary; spearheading the company’s national leadership role in four
telethons including 9/11 and Katrina; establishing Capital One University; driving significant improvement in the customer experience; and enabling meaningful acceptance of process management excellence.
Prior to joining Capital One, Pick was a senior vice president and business information officer at Central Fidelity. He began his career at IBM holding numerous sales, marketing and consulting managerial positions over 19 years.
Pick is a former board member and president of Chesterfield Public Education Foundation; is a founding member on the advisory board of EduLead (a joint venture between U of R and VCU); serves on the board of Center Stage,
having co-chaired numerous committees; and presently participates in a facilitating/leadership role with the Capital Region Collaborative.

Pick said, “I am incredibly excited to join one of Central Virginia’s truly extraordinary non-profit organizations. FeedMore’s reputation and accomplishments are second to none. I’m humbled to be following Fay and her team’s
amazing success record. At the same time, there is a wonderful opportunity to build on that success to take FeedMore and its exceptional staff, volunteers and partners to the next level of excellence and service. I honestly
believe FeedMore has the ability to fully close the hunger gap in Central Virginia and transform lives – that’s what makes the opportunity to join the organization so meaningful.”
