WiNGS, located in Dallas, has named Kate Rose Marquez as its new CEO. She was most recently director of development at St. Vincent de Paul Society of North Texas leading fundraising, marketing and communications.
Ms. Marquez comes to WiNGS with a strong and deep background, having helped various nonprofit and for-profit organizations fulfill their mission through impactful branding and transformative fundraising. She has worked on all sides of the nonprofit equation and understands how to marshal the resources and infrastructure needed to successfully serve the North Texas community.
Laura Ryan, WiNGS board chair, said, “We are excited that Kate Rose will lead WiNGS into this next decade. With experience running marketing at The Dallas Morning News to developing an award-winning branding campaign for the Junior League of Dallas, and chairing many high profile events, Kate Rose will increase the visibility of WiNGS, so that we can help meet the needs of more women who are improving the lives of their families through the education, coaching and skill development our programs provide.”
Kate Rose Marquez added, “I am honored to be leading WiNGS, whose mission of empowering women, fighting poverty and impacting generations is what I’ve done throughout my career, volunteer work and in my family. Sadly, women, especially those struggling financially, don’t all have equal resources and opportunities to achieve their goals, so we want to help equip them with the skills they need to succeed. I look forward to working with the staff and introducing WiNGS to more people and companies.”
