Joyce Nelson, Former President And CEO Of The National Multiple Sclerosis Society, Joins Blackbaud's Board Of Directors

Blackbaud, Inc. (NASDAQ: BLKB), the leading global provider of software and services designed for nonprofit organizations, today announced that Joyce Nelson, former president and CEO of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society (NMSS), has joined its board of directors.

“We’re delighted to have Joyce join the Blackbaud board of directors,” said Andrew M. Leitch, Blackbaud chairman. “She brings a wealth of experience in nonprofit leadership, governance functions, fiduciary responsibility and financial oversight to the board.”

Nelson was with NMSS for 28 years, serving as CEO for the last seven years until she recently retired in October, 2011. During her time with the organization, income grew from $45 million to $210 million, and the Food and Drug Administration approved seven effective treatments for the most common form of multiple sclerosis.

“I’m excited to join the Blackbaud board and to draw from my experience in nonprofit leadership to help guide the company’s strategic direction,” said Nelson. “To thrive despite many challenges nonprofits face, they must continually adapt, embracing technology and bold leadership. Blackbaud is well-positioned to support and lead innovation, helping nonprofits spend more time on their missions.”

“Joyce’s understanding of the challenges faced by nonprofits today will help us better serve the entire nonprofit sector,” said Marc Chardon, Blackbaud’s chief executive officer. “We are very fortunate to have her on our team.”

Nelson is a graduate of North Park University in Chicago where she was recognized for her accomplishments with the awarding of an honorary doctorate in 2006. She also received the Distinguished Alumni Award in 2012. She is a recipient of the Brotherhood Award in Media from the National Conference of Christians and Jews, was named Community Service Leader of the Year in 2008 by Paul Hastings, and received the Honor Award in 2009 from the Invisible Disabilities Advocates. She has served on the boards of the MS International Federation and the North Park University School of Non-Profit Management. She and her husband live in Denver, Colorado.
