About Valtas Group
The Valtas Group was started in 2018 by joining together the knowledge and experience of three distinct but related organizations with a nonprofit lens.
The Founders of these organizations grew concerned about the lack of professional services in the nonprofit sector specifically addressing the leadership transition tsunami taking place. Over 50% of nonprofits will have an Executive Director, CEO, or COO Deputy Director turnover in the next five years. This lack of “bridge talent” when an organization needs it the most causes significant risk to the missions of nonprofits. Valtas Group was formed to fill this gap.
Valtas is experienced at social sector leadership for nonprofits with the talent to bridge gaps and the acumen to guide boards of directors through the maze of choices required during a leadership change. Valtas stands for a shift or change forward and our team can help your transition be successful.
Our team has walked in your shoes. We have built, run and expanded numerous nonprofits and social enterprises.
