StartingBlock Makes Staffing Changes

by Brian Lee


StartingBlock Madison Executive Director Scott Resnick announced today that he is transitioning to the role of entrepreneur-in-residence.

Resnick has served as executive director since June 2015. Leading the project on an interim basis will be Chandra Miller Fienen, who has been tabbed as director of operations.

“This is a moment to celebrate,” Resnick said in a blog post. “(Chandra) will be a spectacular leader for the project, and I look forward to continuing our efforts to build the best possible city for entrepreneurs to thrive.”

According to Resnick, the StartingBlock board of directors will commence a search for his replacement in the next few months.

Meanwhile, Resnick’s new responsibilities include serving as an ambassador to organizations outside of Madison and acting as a point of contact for entrepreneurs searching for mentoring and resources.

“I am excited to transition into StartingBlock’s entrepreneur-in-residence,” Resnick said. “This is the natural next step for me with this project as I envisioned years ago.”
