We are delighted to welcome Massimo Prati, to the position of Director of Finance and Administration effective May 29th. As Director of Finance and Administration, Massimo will oversee CHAC Operations including IT services, finance, facilities, HR and general Administration including the front-office Reception functions.
Massimo joined the nonprofit sector in 2014 as Director of Operations at Embrace. He comes to CHAC from Jacaranda Health, where as Chief Administrative Officer he oversaw US operations, including finance, human resources, legal and regulatory compliance.

He holds a Master of Science and a Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical Engineering, both from Stanford University.
In his spare time Massimo enjoys spending time with his family, the outdoors and riding his Vespa scooter. He is an avid soccer fan and he is looking for ideas on who to root for at this year's World Cup since neither Italy nor Team USA made it to the finals.
