A Warm Welcome to Connor Cook, PowerUP’s New Executive Director

We’re pleased to announce that Connor Cook has been appointed to the role of PowerUP’s Executive Director!

We’re super excited to have Connor and his expertise on our team. As we grow, the need emerged for a talented individual who’s able to focus their time on scaling PowerUP. I’m grateful for our sponsors’ generosity in making this possible.

After beginning his career as a political organizer, Connor has spent nearly a decade working in nonprofits to build organizations, spread messages, and do good. Most recently he was a consultant for CCS Fundraising but has worked in higher education and smaller nonprofits as well. Having grown up doing combat sports and consistently moonlighting as a fitness coach since college, Connor is a firm believer in the good that comes from having discipline and fitness be a part of daily life. He is elated at the prospect of spending his days working to give as many kids as possible the opportunity to thrive through martial arts.

“I’m looking forward to jumping in and making an impact,” Connor says. We are too, Connor!
