New Faces at sf.citi
The new year has brought new faces at sf.citi. Both Jen Stojkovic and Zach Drucker have parted ways with the organization. We are immensely grateful for their time and dedication to our industry and to San Francisco through their work over the years at sf.citi.
Looking to the year ahead, you will see and hear more from our Board of Directors and the Ground Floor Public Affairs team. As many of you know, Ground Floor was instrumental in founding sf.citi and has been representing the organization’s interests for over a decade. Alex Tourk, Ground Floor’s principal, will be joined in this work by Zak Franet and Hayden Anderson from his team and will support our collective work on behalf of our member companies, and the tech industry at large.
sf.citi will now primarily focus on getting back to our roots. To us, this means influencing local issues that affect our industry and employees, fostering relationships with civic and government leaders, and creating a tangible impact in the community. We will be your eyes and ears on the ground at City Hall and ensure you’re informed in real-time on relevant political activity. Our goal is also to build stronger relationships between member companies and key decision-makers and elected officials, to be a united voice and advocate for tangible, long-lasting solutions for the city and the technology industry. We’ll also focus on identifying new ways sf.citi can play a role in positively impacting tech-related issues in San Francisco. Rest assured, the style and programming that this advocacy group is known for, including comprehensive policy discussions with decision makers and elected officials, in person networking events and our Mayoral holiday event, will continue on.
As we dive into this new chapter of our work, we would love to hear from our member companies and community allies. Please don’t hesitate to reach out and share with us what you hope to see prioritized by us in the coming year. We thank you for your trust in our new team and look forward to great things to come in 2023 with you.
Rebecca, Kate, and the Ground Floor Team
