The East Cooper Breakfast Rotary Club will meet Tuesday, April 16th, 2019 at 7:30 a.m. in The Cooper River Room at the Mount Pleasant Waterfront Park. We are pleased to have Karen Quadrio, Director of Development and Marketing at Charleston Promise Neighborhood, as our speaker. Breakfast catered by Dish and Design Catering and Events.

Karen Quadrio is New Jersey born and raised…she still loves the Garden State, but now calls Charleston her hometown.

Before joining Charleston Promise Neighborhood, Karen had had a very successful career in senior management in consumer products, specifically, toys. She grew businesses from the ground up, thinking strategically and making the big ask, eventually managing $235 million in revenue for one of the largest toy manufacturers in the U.S. Forming her own consulting business in 2007, she worked with international consumer products companies to bring their goods to the U.S. However, Karen has just very recently found her true passion.

In January of 2018, she followed her desire to serve those with far less opportunity in the world of education. In the short time since she joined CPN, she has already had significant impact. Now, as Director of Development and Marketing, Karen is lending her skills to the work of providing to the children of The Neck equitable access to education and opportunities for life success.

Karen and her husband Fred have been together for 40 years and they still make each other laugh. But their cat, Jack, also known as “the Mayor,” entertains them most. Karen’s superpower is that she can keep a secret, but she’s now making sure the great work of Charleston Promise Neighborhood is a secret no more.
