PresidentSteve Harrison is CDR's President and has spent his entire three-plus-decade career in direct marketing. He brings a rich and unique set of skills to the table that has allowed him to modernize and future-proof the agency, while building amazing teams to deliver solid fundraising results every day. By engaging with care and transparency, he’s built a family culture where employees are heard and respected, and thrive as a result.
