KANSAS CITY, MO (June, 2014) – Missouri Hunting Heritage Federation (MHHF) announces the appointment of Susan Williams as Executive Director. Williams, a Kansas City native, was selected by the MHHF Board of Directors after a nationwide search.

Williams’ professional career includes 19 years in the for-profit sector. Working at both DST Systems and Commerce Bank, Williams demonstrated leadership in defining and implementing processes and initiatives that helped drive company growth. In addition, she has extensive experience as a volunteer working to build relationships among key stakeholders and developing programs that contribute to financial stability.

“As a volunteer and consultant, I have led strategies for dozens of non-profit events,” she says. “The result of those efforts helped generate revenues ranging from $25,000 to $500,000.”

In hiring Williams, the MHHF Board believes she will help the organization grow on many fronts.

“In total, we’ve staged 51 clinics and reached 252 families,” says MHHF President and co-founder Lee Vogel. “Our plans are to aggressively grow our presence in Missouri. We believe Susan is the right person to provide us the leadership we need to establish a strong foundation for continued growth – financially and ultimately statewide expansion.”

Having assumed responsibilities June 9, Williams first area of focus will be the organization’s annual Shoot for the Future sporting clays fund-raising event.

“This is one of two events we host each year,” says Williams. “We have some exciting additions this year including a live auction, silent action and an evening gala event at the Kansas City Club the week before the shoot.”

Williams holds a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from Truman State University.
