Leadership Fairfax, a nonprofit that aims to inspire private and public sector individuals to tackle community issues, announced today (March 4) that Sigle will be the new chief operating officer and vice president of external relations.
“Andy’s passionate dedication to community and his ability to collaborate across sectors makes him an ideal addition to the staff at Leadership Fairfax,” Karen Cleveland, the chief executive officer and president of Leadership Fairfax, said in a statement. “We know his vision will help guide the organization as we move into a new year of opportunity and growth.”
In his new role, Sigle will work with external community partners and serve as a sponsorship contact for the nonprofit’s signature events, according to the press release.
Sigle graduated from the 2014 class of the Leadership Fairfax Institute, a 10-month program to help strengthen professional and community leaders, according to the press release.
Since then, Sigle has volunteered and worked with a plethora of community groups, including Cornerstones, the Southgate Community Center Advisory Council, Lake Anne Brew House, the Reston Historic Trust and The Reston Chorale, according to the press release.
Last year, Sigle was honored as a Best of Reston recipient.
Recently in his role as the Reston Association’s president, Sigle has urged Restonians to get engaged with a proposal that would increase the Planned Residential Community (PRC) district — Reston’s primary zoning district — in certain areas. A spokesman for the Reston Association declined to comment on Sigle’s Leadership Fairfax role.
