DETROIT – The Triangle Foundation has announced the addition of two new staff members. Greg Varnum and Sean Moore have been named as executive assistant and sponsorship coordinator, respectively.
Varnum’s role as executive assistant will have him working with Triangle’s Executive Director Jeffrey Montgomery on a number of special projects. One major aspect of his work will be coordinating Triangleƕs recently launched Youth Initiatives Project in concert with Triangle Youth Committee Chair Chad Grandy.
“Triangle offered me an opportunity to work on the things I feel passionate about,” Varnum said. “Triangle’s staff feels like a family and since the day I started I’ve felt right at home and totally supported in every aspect of my work.”
Varnum brings a mixture of experience in both youth development and organizational development. He joins Triangle after working as a Coordinator at Eastern Michigan University’s LGBT Resource Center. His work at EMU was recognized numerous times with such honors as the Evans-Strand Peace Award, Gold Medallion and he was the first two-time recipient of the Stonewall Scholarship.
In addition to Varnum, Sean Moore has been welcomed into Triangle as sponsorship coordinator. Moore’s role puts his enthusiasm for Triangle’s activism to use in developing sponsorships for the agency’s larger community-building events.
“It is a great honor to join the staff of Triangle Foundation,” Moore said. “We strive to make Michigan a better, safer place for the GLBT community” he added.
Moore has been contributing to LGBT events in Michigan for several years. His hard work was recognized in 2005 when he and his colleagues on the Motor City Pride Planning Committee were honored at the 20th Annual Pride Banquet & Awards Ceremony. Moore currently serves on the Board of Directors of InterPride, the international association of gay pride coordinators.
Kevin McAlpine, Triangle Foundation’s development director said of Moore, “After years of spending countless hours in a volunteer leadership capacity with Triangle, we are pleased to be able to bring him on board and utilize his talents to further develop relationships with our corporate sponsors.”
