Category : Leadership
Cindy Jones-Nyland is the Chief Marketing Officer of Heifer International, a nonprofit, humanitarian organization dedicated to ending hunger and poverty and caring for the Earth.
She leads a global team responsible for raising funding for and elevating awareness of Heifer’s global work. She counts herself fortunate to have visited Heifer International projects in all corners of the world. It’s Cindy’s belief that people are far more alike than different, and that unity makes us all responsible for the well-being of others, and she is grateful to be living out her personal mission while employed at Heifer International.
She has a degree in marketing from Washburn University and a Master’s of Business Administration from the University of Texas at Arlington. She has previously worked with Lifeblue Media and Susan G. Komen for the Cure® as well as Oracle, MetaSolv Software and Southwestern Bell Corporation. She started her career in the telecommunications/technology sector and moved into the nonprofit arena over 10 years ago.
She and her sisters grew up on a farm in rural Kansas, but she has spent most of her professional life in Dallas, thus finding herself equally comfortable walking in wheat fields and navigating an urban rush-hour gridlock.
She and her husband are raising a firecracker daughter who surprises her parents daily with both her wisdom and youthful joy.
