Cam says...
“I meet people every single day who exist to make the world better. They just don’t quite know how to do it. That’s where I help. Give me a flip chart and a marker. Together we’ll come up with a plan to do more good.”

Kristian Dart

VP, Products and Relationships

Kristian brings a strategic perspective to our client’s fundraising portfolios. He introduces clients to new approaches that take their donor relationships and results to a new level. And Kristian will amaze you with his encyclopaedic knowledge of sports trivia.

Kristian says...
“My dad collected baseball cards and he used them to teach me about baseball. It was the beginning of my passion for baseball and data. And Mike Schmidt was my dad’s favourite player. Every time I see that card it’s like getting a hug from dad.”
