our team

Interconnected with you in mind.

Many organizations struggle to manage back office tasks internally, leading to inefficient operations or the outsourcing of tasks to a number of disconnected contractors. Our goal is to offer a more reputable, sustainable, and cost-effective alternative. 

We are a unified team of professional experts who bring enthusiasm and experience to the very back office responsibilities you are eager to delegate. Switch Back Office was specifically created to alleviate the back office challenges of small- to mid-scale nonprofits and businesses; the composition of our team reflects this emphasis.

In developing our team, we’ve examined the most up-to-date research and data available to ensure that we offer assistance and innovation within the service areas where nonprofits and businesses need our help the most. Above all, our team is interconnected — communicating and collaborating frequently across disciplines to bring all of our collective expertise, knowledge, and best practices to bear on each project we adopt.

Please learn more about our team below, and discover why Switch is uniquely equipped to inherit the back office needs of your organization, so you can resume your essential, mission-driven work.
