Pittsburgh, PA – Christopher Dinnin, Managing Director of downtown cybersecurity firm CyLumena, is the new President of the Board of Directors for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Pittsburgh (BBBS) as of January 1, 2020.
His volunteer board position culminates three years as a board member and vice president, as well as an advocate, supporter, and Big.
“It is my honor to represent BBBS of Greater Pittsburgh as its new president. And to be a part of the team that has built one of the most financially stable BBBS chapters in the country,” shares Chris Dinnin.
As president, Dinnin wants to extend BBBS’s success in consistently increasing the number of children they serve, having reached over 1,500 in 2018.
“There is more work to be done to build on past achievements – winning the National Agency of the Year award twice in the past seven years and being named the National Board of the Year by Big Brothers Big Sisters of America,” Chris adds.
He, and his wife Kim, first got involved with BBBS in 1996. Since then, Chris and Kim have participated as “Bigs” for Shakara (age 9 in 2000) through the Community-based program and for TJ as part of the “Be a Middle School Mentor” program for the 2018/2019 and 2019/2020 school years.
Jan Glick, CEO BBBS Greater Allegheny, shares in the excitement, “We are thrilled to have Chris onboard as the new Board President. He has been an active teammate and valuable advocate over the past 24 years, and we look forward to seeing what he will achieve in his new role.”
As managing director at CyLumena, Chris has made it an organizational mission to engage more employees in the work of Big Brothers Big Sisters through the company’s Community Service value. The cybersecurity firm will show their support for Big Brothers Big Sisters at the upcoming Bowl for Kids’ Sake event this spring.
“It is great to take my passion for youth and bring that to our wider CyLumena organization. Together, we can support the Big Brother Big Sisters mission to create a brighter future for our youth and to be their ‘Defenders of Potential’,” says Dinnin.
CyLumena was created out of a growing need for reliable cybersecurity technology, support, and expert guidance in the Pittsburgh region and beyond.
Our mission is to provide clients with peace of mind around cybersecurity through a cost-effective combination of preparation and prevention that we call CyberLean.
