Encore Host Organization

Futures and Options

Futures and Options empowers New York City’s underserved youth to explore careers through career development and paid, mentored internships. During David Pfeifer’s Encore Fellowship, he pitched in on any  project required. When his Fellowship ended in September, he accepted a full-time job as Operations Manager.

“We hired him because he is the best person for the job,” says Patty Machir, executive director. “David’s prior experience in the for-profit world as a COO, CFO and CEO has been immensely helpful and, because of his efforts and contributions, we are a much better-managed nonprofit.”

Machir adds, “His ability to communicate effectively with our team, his respectfulness, his integrity and his terrific sense of humor are all much appreciated. And he will roll up his sleeves to tackle any project — he just gets it done.”
