MIDDLETOWN — Harvest Development Group, a nationally-recognized consultant firm working specifically with nonprofit organizations, has appointed Scott A. Selig as Partner, effective immediately. Selig had served as the firm’s Associate Vice President of Business Development since Sept. 2019, according to an email from the Group.
“Scott has made a huge impact during his time here at Harvest, expanding our digital footprint and service offerings that will define our firm’s future” said Sondra Lintelmann Dellaripa, president and principal consultant of Harvest Development Group. “In addition, Scott’s strategic thinking and quick action provided our clients with a series of webinars and a conference that addressed critical, real-time issues our clients were facing as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Our clients continue to benefit from Scott’s efforts.”
Beginning in March, Selig created a series of webinars called “Do Good Better Lunch-Ins” that addressed the pandemic’s initial impact on nonprofits. Participants met industry experts who provided insights to the challenges and opportunities nonprofits were facing in the areas of marketing, financial management, data support and customer relationship management.
In addition, Selig created and hosted Harvest’s first-ever national conference called RISE, Forging Opportunity from Disruption, which offered 20 interactive workshops led by nonprofit experts that helped nonprofits build strategies and implement plans in these challenging times.
Currently, Selig is creating the Harvest Development Group Advisory Board, a group of thought leaders in the areas of healthcare, arts, service providers and education. The board will provide Harvest clients with frontline expertise to help them develop new products and services.
Selig is a mentor with the CT Alpha Epsilon Pi fraternity whose mission is to provide education, resources and training to the future leaders of the world’s Jewish communities through the teaching of Tikkun Olam, which is Hebrew for healing the world.
He was recently named to the International Association for Research on Service-Learning and Community Engagement, an international nonprofit organization devoted to promoting research and discussion regarding service-learning and community engagement, and serves as a lead in the Graduate Student Mentorship Group.
Previously, Selig has served as a mentor for the Obama Foundation Hartford Cohort where he coached a team addressing teen homelessness and runaways.
Selig received a Master of Arts in teaching, education/history from Washington University in St. Louis, and a Bachelor of Arts in history from Emory University.
Selig resides in West Hartford.
