Nicole T. Sebastian has joined VCG Governance Matters (formerly the Volunteer Consulting Group) as Deputy Executive Director.  In this role, she will focus on expanding VCG’s outreach for nonprofit Board candidates, assist with its corporate training and placement practice, and assume a role in ongoing fundraising in support of its governance mission. 

“The Board and Staff are thrilled to have Nicole join our team at VCG Governance Matters,” said David LaGreca, Executive Director, “and look forward to her bringing her years of experience to our work strengthening the governance capacity of the nonprofit sector. 

With over 15 years of professional experience in the non-profit and corporate sectors, Sebastian brings a wide range of expertise to the position.  Prior to joining VCG, she was a Senior Associate with the CEO and Board Practice at Heidrick & Struggles, a leading global executive search firm.  She was previously the Manager of Governance at the Robin Hood Foundation, where she was responsible for the board development, recruitment and governance education needs of Robin Hood’s grant recipients.  She has also worked as a freelance consultant, helping several non-profit organizations and foundations in New York with their strategic and operating plans.  In addition, she has conducted policy research for UNICEF on the prevention of trafficking, served a tour with the UNDP in Costa Rica, and worked for Saint-Gobain Desjonquères, a French glass manufacturer.
Sebastian holds a Master’s degree in Public Administration from Columbia University with a concentration in nonprofit management and a BA in English and French literature from SUNY Geneseo.

She is a founding member of the Young Professionals Committee of Susan G. Komen for the Cure, a board member of the Women’s Executive Circle of New York (WECNY), and a longtime member of the Grantmakers Committee of VCG Governance Matters.
