Board of Directors Names Rilwan Feyisitan, Jr. President & CEO of Community Action Partnership of Providence County

Letter from CAPP's Board President:

CAPP's Board of Directors has elected to change the title of our Executive Director Rilwan Feyisitan, Jr. to President and CEO, effective immediately. Rilwan came to CAPP with years of executive leadership experience across several sectors including more than a decade in public heath leading health promotion, policy, and disparity elimination efforts at the state and regional levels. He was a central part of CAPP's transformative leadership team 9 years ago that drove the organization from receivership into a newly incorporated, and financially sound and growing 501c3. Under Rilwan’s leadership, CAPP was recognized by the Rhode Island Foundation and the Heron Foundation as one of "21 RI Nonprofits Too Important to Fail" in 2018-2019. Rilwan was also listed in the publication "2019 Census of Directors and Chief Executives of RI’s Largest Nonprofit Organizations" receiving recognition as 1 of only 4 BIPOC nonprofit executives in Rhode Island whose organizations have reported revenue of $10 million dollars or more. Rilwan and his team continue to excel as an organization even through the ongoing pandemic. CAPP is expanding our workforce each year along with the expansion of much needed programs and services our communities deserve and expect of us. He leads our organization by the moniker “Leading with Dignity, Serving with Purpose”. Rilwan is a compassionate CEO and community leader with the business acumen to run our multi-million dollar organization with excellence, and consistently does a great job each year leveraging our funding and stewarding our limited resources as demands increase.

As President of the CAPP Board of Directors, I am excited to partner with our new President and CEO Rilwan Feyisitan, Jr. and our dedicated staff in the critically important work our organization provides to those most in need in our communities.
