    SUSAN RICKMAN

    CEO, World Pediatric Project

    Susan has spent most of her career working to improve the lives of children in Africa, Southeast Asia, Central America and the Caribbean. Since 2001 she has grown the World Pediatric Project from a non-profit with a $500,000 annual budget to a $19 million operation in FY 2017. WPP has provided advanced pediatric care to more than 11,000 children in Central America and the Caribbean. 

    The World Pediatric Project is a Richmond based non-profit that heals critically ill children and builds healthcare capacity in the world. 

    But, behind that simple description is a complex and skilled organization that has the business expertise to run a medical personnel recruiting company, a travel agency, an international logistics company, a mobile hospital, and a medical records company. It also has to raise the funds required to provide its services.  

    WPP brings specialized diagnostic and surgical care directly to more than 2,000 children in 12 partner countries in remote parts of the Caribbean and Central America.  It accomplishes this by mobilizing complete medical teams covering most every pediatric sub-specialty and organizing nearly 50 trips each year for intense, weeklong visits to its partner countries. The teams come from a strong network of 24 partner hospitals.

    Because of the specialized nature of the care provided by the highly skilled teams, this level of care would simply not exist for these children without WPP. 

    Key to WPP’s success are the medical personnel that repeatedly give their time to the effort. For example, Dr. Moskowitz has made more than 35 trips to seven different countries in 12 years with the program.  He has treated at least 2,500 patients in the Eastern Caribbean and Central America. And he’s nowhere near finished with his work. This fall, Dr. Moskowitz will travel to St. Lucia to establish another diagnostic sweep.

    MICHAEL BOR

    CEO of CarLOTZ

    Michael Bor, the CEO of Carlotz, will be our speaker at the November Encorepreneur! breakfast.  Carlotz recently closed on $30 million in equity capital to fund continued expansion of the 6-year-old used vehicle consignment business. Bor will speak on where the “ride” that he and co-founders Aaron Montgomery and Will Boland began in 2011 has taken them, and where it is going as it seems to be speeding up.

    CarLotz takes vehicles on consignment and, for a flat fee, prepares the vehicle for resale and negotiates a deal on the seller’s behalf. The seller can net significantly more from a Carlotz sale then they would from CarMax or a trade in. The buyer pays less than he would at a traditional dealer.

    Bor founded the company with initial funding from friends, family and angel investors including former supermarket retailer banker, and encorepreneur, Jim Ukrop.  It currently operates 2 stores in Richmond and others in Chesapeake, Charlotte and Greensboro. They are actively seeking new retail locations in Florida, Texas, California, the Midwest, New England and elsewhere in the Mid-Atlantic.
