Pursuant, a full-service fundraising agency serving nonprofit organizations, welcomes Dr. Rana Salman as senior vice president, client solutions. Salman brings extensive research and client solution expertise from the for-profit industry that will equip her in creating innovative solutions for Pursuant’s clients.
Salman will partner with clients to help drive their initiatives and collaboratively identify solutions that will solve their organizational and fundraising challenges. She will also conduct extensive research to deepen Pursuant’s knowledge of its clients’ challenges and increase its effectiveness in serving them with customized solutions.
“I am excited to work for a company whose core purpose is to serve and inspire the nonprofit community to change the world through great causes. I immigrated to the US when I was 12 years old, and I’ve witnessed the generosity of nonprofits to help me pursue my dreams and complete my education,” said Salman. “This made a big impact in my life, and it eventually led me to Pursuant, where I am thrilled to have the opportunity to serve the social sector that has meant so much to me. It’s a privilege to be able to contribute to Pursuant’s thought leadership in the space and to work in partnership with current and future clients to tackle the biggest challenges they face.”

Salman managed global accounts, sold a range of services and products to solve customers’ problems, and helped drive revenue. She is passionate about researching and partnering with clients to create customized solutions that will drive their initiatives and solve their business problems.
“Rana’s expertise in the for-profit space and extensive research experience will provide our clients with a new trusted partner in their journey,” said Pursuant CEO Trent Ricker. “We see Rana becoming an advisor to social sector organizations in the same way that she was with Fortune 500 companies prior to joining Pursuant. We are very excited to have her join our team.”
