Repair The World Welcomes Julia Malaga as Chief Operating Officer
(New York)– Repair the World, an organization that mobilizes Jews and their communities to take action to pursue a just world, welcomes Julia Malaga (she/her) as Chief Operating Officer (COO). Julia’s selection is the result of an extensive and robust search process, supported by the search firm Heidrick & Struggles.
“Julia will be a key leader on Repair’s executive team, working to strengthen organizational infrastructure and culture in order to help us work effectively with partners and young adults around the country,” said Cindy Greenberg, CEO of Repair the World. “With Julia’s leadership, we will ensure everyone on our team is engaged and has what they need to succeed in their roles through strategic human resources, streamlined and efficient operations, and accurate and timely financials.”
“From my Girl Scout days, when I pledged to leave places better than I found them through my career in the nonprofit world, and my service with my Jewish Federation, tikkun olam has been a core guiding value for me,” said Malaga. “It is gratifying and humbling to be joining a team of inspiring leaders doing this work on a daily basis.”
Julia joins Repair after serving as the Chief Financial and Operating Officer at Golda Och Academy, a Jewish day school in New Jersey, for the past 18 years. Julia brings extensive experience in finance, human resources, risk management and organizational development. She has chaired numerous global Jewish Federation committees and participated in both the Borinsky Young Leadership Program and the Peoplehood Project, which ultimately led to a life changing trip to Ukraine in 2018 to engage with the Jewish community there. She currently serves on the board of the Mack Ness Fund and the Joint Israel Commission of the Reconstructing Judaism movement.
