What an exciting time we're having here at InStove. We have just hired a new development director, Tim Armstrong, who will be a key player in our ongoing growth. Tim's credentials include over 20 years of experience working with non-profit organizations. Most recently, Tim was the director of a sustainable funding program for the Habitat of Humanity in Eugene, Oregon.
Tim's experience living and working in Turkey and Indonesia is quite applicable for an organization like InStove that works with many different cultures abroad. Tim also teaches non-profit business management courses at the Non-Profit Management Institute at Lane County Community College's Small Business Development Center. This knowledge will be instrumental in the work that our team has ahead of us. We're fortunate to be building a team of such well-rounded professionals and are only expecting more growth from here on out.
In another big move, after months of decisions and developments, we have chosen a logo that we believe incorporates our stove's core design principles (symbolized by the fuel shelf), vibrancy, and holistic approach to business We really like the sleekness and simplicity of the design, and hopefully our followers do too! Our logo was donated by Cawood in Eugene, OR. Liz Cawood, President, and Cari Ingrassia, the art director, graciously donated their time and expertise. Our sincerest thanks go out to them and the rest of the Cawood Team.
