Red Wing fintech hires new Chief Partnership Officer prior to the launch of Spave 2.0
[Red Wing, MN, May 2, 2021] —Live.Give.Save. (LGS) is excited to announce its most recent hire, Megan Schuetzle-Furth, as its Chief Partnership Officer. In this newly-created position, Schuetzle-Furth will focus on acquiring and growing partnerships – particularly within the nonprofit, credit union, and employer sectors. She will begin by connecting with our soon-to-be-announced strategic partner and the 10 nonprofit partner leaders (aka, “Spave Faves”) who raised their hand to pilot Spave during its soft launch earlier this year. Creating new, more relevant ways for nonprofits to better engage younger generations so they can experience the difference they are making in the world is the core tenet of this new position.
Schuetzle-Furth spent the last 14 years as Director of Client Success at The Emmerich Group, Inc., and was recognized consistently for her contributions in business development, strategic marketing, sales, change management, and workforce accountability. Schuetzle-Furth has played a key role in impacting companies’ growth and profitability, hitting their strategic goals and heightening their client experiences. She is also the co-founder of a nonprofit, The Women’s Forum, a network that empowers professional women seeking a greater purpose.
“Given Megan’s business savvy, past client success, and passion for amplifying social impact, I have solid confidence we selected the right individual for this important role at this pivotal time in our journey,” said Susan Langer, founder and CEO of Live.Give.Save. “We are very excited to re-introduce Spave to the market in the coming weeks through Megan’s leadership.”
Spave provides a secure platform where individuals can easily donate to organizations or causes that deeply matter to them and accomplish personal saving goals through their everyday spending. It’s a win-win for both the individual using the platform for personal savings or generous giving and the organizations receiving the contributions.
“I am thrilled to be joining the Live.Give.Save. team and its mission to transform everyday spending for good. I look forward to working with the Spave Faves and developing additional partnerships with like-minded organizations who share our vision and values with a strong desire to impact the world around us,” said Megan Schuetzle-Furth.
“If we help even just one organization to receive an extra dollar towards their cause, just one student to pay off their student loans earlier, one mother to save more for her child’s yearly extracurricular activity expenses, one family to save enough money to go on that three-day vacation, then we are doing our part to make a difference.”
