Chris Sarette graduated from a dual degree BA/MA Communication Management program at the University of Southern California at the ripe old age of 21. With Summa Cum Laude honors and multiple job offers, he seemed destined to join the ranks of a communication consulting firm. That’s when he watched a 55-minute documentary about the plight of people in Uganda that changed everything. Since then, Sarette has worked at the innovative NGO Invisible Children, where he has put his skills to use in a number of different positions. Today, Sarette oversees the logistical arm of the organization, managing core operations which include Technology, HR, Shipping, Office Management, CRM Administration, and Product Manufacturing. Now a Salesforce.com Certified Administrator, Sarette spends most of his day finding new ways to maximize the efficiency and effectiveness of Invisible Children, which has grown from a three hundred thousand dollar annual budget to nearly
seven and a half million. On the rare occasion when he’s not working, you’ll probably find Sarette running the trails of Balboa Park in San Diego.
