Nory Angel, SER CEO, to leave organization in 2018

On behalf of the Board of Directors and staff at SER-Jobs for Progress, Inc., we would like to share with you that Nory Angel, Executive Director and CEO of SER, will be leaving the organization in early February 2018. After 14 years at SER (including nine years as Chief Executive Officer), she will depart to become the Executive Director of TEACH.

Nory began her career with SER in 2003 – first as the Workforce Director before being promoted to Chief Operating Officer, and then to CEO in 2009. She has been a wonderful, dynamic asset to our organization. During her tenure, SER has established a wide range of programs targeting the workforce needs of low-income populations such as youth, adults post-release from prison, and homeless individuals; expanded its programs and services beyond Houston to include Galveston, Fort Bend and four other neighboring counties; successfully launched and executed a $11.5 million capital campaign resulting in the acquisition of five acres in Houston’s East End for growth and expansion; and in June 2018, will open the doors to Houston’s first Workforce Opportunity Center and career café, La Chamba Coffee + Careers.

Nory has expressed that leaving SER is filled with mixed emotions.

“My time at SER has been the best, most rewarding experience in my professional life. It has been full of amazing opportunities and experiences from seeing our graduates transform their lives through SER’s programs; to being ready to open Houston’s first career café concept which will bring local employers and job seekers together and ensure companies have access to the skilled workers they need and SER grads have opportunities to begin solid career paths.

I want to thank the Board of Directors and staff for allowing me the privilege to serve this extraordinary organization. I also want to thank our community of donors, funders and partners whose generosity and partnership helped fuel our growth and progress.”

Nory has been instrumental in laying the foundation for SER’s current and future operations, including building a solid team within the organization that will ensure SER’s continued services, growth, and stability. Nory will also continue to support SER in an advisory role.

The Board has named a committee to lead the search for the next leader of SER. During this time of transition, we count on your continued support so that the people SER serves can continue to count on us. Please join us in thanking Nory for her dedication and service and in wishing her continued success in her new role.
