For more than 20 years, Mary Gamba has worked closely with Steve Adubato and the CEC fundraising team to develop, guide and oversee the growth and management of the CEC from a small, single-program production company into the multi-media content provider it is today. As Executive Director of the CEC, Mary works closely with the CEC fundraising team to continually meet and exceed the individual needs of current and prospective underwriters. Mary’s expertise focuses on client service, team coaching and engagement and overall sponsor relations to ensure satisfaction on all aspects of each partnership.
Mary has also been a major influence on the development and execution of Stand & Deliver: Communication Tools for Tomorrow’s Leaders—a youth leadership program serving over 400 young adults in Newark, Paterson and Union County. Mary works hand in hand with the Stand & Deliver project director and workshop leaders to design and customize the curriculum, plan and execute weekly workshops, symposia and special events, and is the program director for the annual “Night of Eloquence,” the culminating celebration of the program and the largest fundraiser for the organization.
