Mary Denton in SF Business Times

Mary Denton, CEO of Sunny Hills Services

Premium content from San Francisco Business Times by Krystal Peak

Date: Friday, June 1, 2012, 3:00am PDT

Mission: To engage vulnerable children and youth, enrich their connection with family and community and empower them to lead healthy, rewarding lives.

The start: Sunny Hills Services serves vulnerable youth and their families. It was originally founded in 1895 as an orphanage and farm in Marin County and is now a regional child welfare organization. This year, the San Anselmo-based nonprofit will serve more than 2,000 young people and another 4,000 family members through an array of programs focused on the educational, mental health, housing and developmental needs of vulnerable youth.

Milestone: The organization is about to celebrate its 117th anniversary on June 8.

Corporate support: Autodesk, Bank of Marin, Exchange Bank, Frank Howard Allen Realtors, Infineon Raceway, R.A.B. Motors, Sam’s Anchor Café.

Board of directors: 16 board members, including Lydia Cameron, Jennifer Gotti, William Caroli, Jay Cahan.

Office Issues

Recent challenge: Fiscal constraints. Especially when state and county budgets are so tight and private giving is just starting to recover. So we are always challenged by what our budget can allow us to do for the children.

Measures of success: We are currently working on enhancing our organization metrics. There are several of them that we look at; from helping to keep children out of juvenile hall and reaching as many families as possible, but, to me, what’s most impactful is hearing those individual stories of children that really benefit. When I hear about one of the kids we work with who has battled anxiety and is now feeling comfortable in the classroom because we were able to help provide support – that’s the metric I get the most from.

Smartest move: One of the things that’s been really positive is an initiative in the East Bay where we worked with three other organizations to provide a better experience for our clients. (It’s called) Next Steps Collaborative and it helps provide housing and support services for more than 100 youth.

Missed opportunity: Kids that need our services who we aren’t reaching or who we don’t have the capacity to serve.

Misconception: That the public funding that we receive covers our costs. We do get a substantial amount from state and county sources, but nowhere near the amount to meet the public need.

Around the corner: Sunny Hills is just starting the second year implementing a strategic plan – an effort to further define our theory of change to assure we have a real clear idea of our track and outcomes. Also, our Wine, Women Shoes fundraiser will take place on Sept. 15. The event features a shopping marketplace, wine and food tasting, fashion show and more.

Personal insight

Personal path to nonprofit work: My path was certainly non-traditional. I spent 20-plus years in international banking and eventually joined the board of a small nonprofit group. I was totally hooked by the mission of furthering nonprofit efforts. I wanted to put my skills to work in the sector rather than just volunteer. Twelve years ago I joined Sunny Hills.

Most surprising aspect: That was going to be one of the most challenging jobs I’ve had. It was amazing how much of my business and banking experience I’ve used in managing this business. There is a lot of developing strategy and programs as well as the financial management.

Biggest pain: Never having enough hours in the day to do all the things I have on my to-do list.

Greatest pleasure: I work on the Sunny Hills Services main campus in San Anselmo and I get to see the kids from our therapeutic day school playing on the front lawn. When you see them playing with such abandon, you realize their potential for a better and brighter future.

Introspections

Best recent moment: Sunny Hills Services just received a grant from Tipping Point Community. At their recent fundraising event, I got to see the outpouring of their support of the community as they raised more than $8 million.

Dream for another life: I play the piano a little and I would love the idea of being artist or performer in some capacity.

Greatest inspiration: I get inspired more by nature, beauty and music.

Causes: Social and economic justice such as access to affordable housing, and I am connected to the Humane Society.

Most like to meet: Warren Buffett. He is probably the person with the best grasp of the economy, business and market. Also Eleanor Roosevelt. She was an extraordinary woman, and I still have a thank-you letter she wrote to my grandmother that means a lot to me.

Ailes out at Fox News, Fox Business

Roger Ailes is out as chief executive at Fox News Channel and Fox Business, his career at the networks he built from scratch and ran with an iron hand for nearly 20 years over with stunning swiftness following allegations that he forced out a former anchor after she spurned his sexual advances.

Hours before the final night of the Republican National Convention. network parent 21st Century Fox announced Thursday that Ailes would resign immediately.

Rupert Murdoch. the executive chairman of 21st Century Fox, will assume the role of chairman and acting CEO of Fox News Channel and Fox Business Network until a replacement is named.

Murdoch and 21st Century Fox did not address the widening scandal in the statement on the resignation but lauded Ailes for his contributions.

“It is always difficult to create a channel or a publication from the ground up and against seemingly entrenched monopolies,” Murdoch said in a statement. “(Ailes’) grasp of policy and his ability to make profoundly important issues accessible to a broader audience stand in stark contrast to the self-serving elitism that characterizes far too much of the media.”

Fox is heading into a general election campaign in its customary spot at the top of the ratings, but without the man who sets its editorial tone every day.

The blustery, 76-year-old media executive built a network that both transformed the news business and changed the political conversation. Fox News Channel provided a television home to conservatives who had felt left out of the media, and played a part in advancing a rough-and-tumble style of politics that left many concerned that it was impossible to get things done in government.

Ailes’ downfall began with the July 6 filing of a lawsuit by Gretchen Carlson. who charged that Ailes sabotaged her career because she refused his suggestions for sex and had complained about a pervasive atmosphere of sexual harassment at Fox.

Ailes has denied the charges, but 21st Century Fox hired a law firm to investigate.

Several Fox employees jumped to Ailes’ defense, but notably not Megyn Kelly. one of Fox’s top personalities. In rapid succession, it was reported Kelly was among other women who had told investigators about harassment again denied by Ailes and that corporate heads Rupert Murdoch and his sons, James and Lachlan, determined that Ailes had to go.

Within two weeks of the court filing, Carlson’s lawyers also said more than 20 women had contacted the firm with stories of alleged harassment by Ailes either against themselves or someone they knew. Two of them came forward publicly.

Before the charges, Fox’s sheer success had insulated Ailes despite some previous scrapes with the Murdoch sons. Fox News Channel is the parent company’s single most important property, said Pivotal Research Group analyst Brian Wieser. with some estimates that it accounted for nearly a quarter of the company’s profits.

Ailes was a prominent Republican media consultant who later ran CNBC before Murdoch asked him to create a cable news network to compete with CNN at the same time MSNBC was starting. Ailes’ slogans, “fair and balanced” and “we report, you decide,” appealed to an audience that believed mainstream outlets didn’t live up to those promises.

“He was ahead of his time in recognizing that dividing, not uniting, an audience would be the key to commercial success in the 21st Century cable news business,” said Matt Sienkiewicz. communications professor at Boston College. Ailes blew apart the notion that public affairs programming should target a broad audience with civil debates, he said.

Ailes hired a combative broadcast journeyman in Bill O’Reilly and turned him into the star of an opinionated prime-time lineup. He directed news coverage and emphasized issues like the so-called “war on Christmas” or the Benghazi investigation that otherwise got little attention. Republican politicians considered Fox the first stop for reaching their intended audience, and they learned to talk tough. “We’re not going to be defensive about anything,” Ailes said at the network’s launch.

Definition of ‘Stock Market’

Definition: It is a place where shares of pubic listed companies are traded. The primary market is where companies float shares to the general public in an initial public offering (IPO) to raise capital.

Description: Once new securities have been sold in the primary market, they are traded in the secondary market—where one investor buys shares from another investor at the prevailing market price or at whatever price both the buyer and seller agree upon. The secondary market or the stock exchanges are regulated by the regulatory authority. In India, the secondary and primary markets are governed by the Security and Exchange Board of India (SEBI).

A stock exchange facilitates stock brokers to trade company stocks and other securities. A stock may be bought or sold only if it is listed on an exchange. Thus, it is the meeting place of the stock buyers and sellers. India’s premier stock exchanges are the Bombay Stock Exchange and the National Stock Exchange.

All-Flash Enterprise Storage Company Ranks #2 Among Bay Area Companies with 101-500 Employees on Annual Best Places to Work List

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA – April 25, 2014 — Pure Storage, the all-flash enterprise storage company, today announced that it has been named to the San Francisco Business Times’ annual list of Best Places to Work in the Bay Area for a third consecutive year. The company ranked #2 in the medium-sized company category (101-500 employees), and received high marks for its meritocratic work environment, diverse and talented workforce, and thriving company culture.

The 11th annual Best Places to Work in the Bay Area awards were presented by the San Francisco Business Times and Silicon Valley Business Journal at a ceremony on April 17, 2014. Each year, the publications compile the annual list based on employee surveys that measure worker satisfaction across several areas, including personal growth, workplace environment and managerial effectiveness.

“Spontaneous fun” tops the list of employees’ favorite things about office life at Pure Storage. From impromptu Nerf Bazooka fights, to company-wide in-office bungee races, the “Puritans” enjoy a truly ‘work-hard, play-hard’ culture. The company’s smart, dedicated team and hands-on, “in the trenches” executive leadership were also highlighted by employees as being key to what makes working at Pure Storage special.

“It is an honor to again be recognized as one of the Bay Area’s top workplaces by the SF Business Times, and we are immensely grateful to our employees for their enthusiasm and support,” said Scott Dietzen, CEO of Pure Storage. “Ultimately, it’s the people and culture at Pure Storage that make our company great. We’re proud to offer a work environment where trailblazers, innovators and disruptors thrive. We look forward to adding more exceptional people to our ranks in 2014—in the Bay Area, and beyond—as we continue to aggressively scale our operations around the globe.”

Pure Storage was founded in 2009, with a vision to transform the enterprise storage industry. Since emerging from stealth in 2011, it has achieved unprecedented growth, expanding rapidly to meet global demand for its next generation, all-flash enterprise storage array.
