Holly Lang

Job Title: Principal

Organization: Dini Spheris

Holly Lang truly thrives in her work because of the people. Her relationship skills stand out when she meets, helps and is able to work with and impact organizations. For Ms. Lang, to excel at consulting is to have a trusted, collaborative relationship with client staff and volunteers - one that helps them grow. Where others see problems or difficult and challenging circumstances, Ms. Lang sees the opportunity for change or innovation and works to discover the best solution.

Ms. Lang recently assisted in merging an organization with a limited fundraising history. This organization needed to raise $30 million in a dauntingly short timeline of only 12 months. No matter the situation, she motivates her clients every step of the way, encouraging them to celebrate every success during the journey.

Born and raised in Atlanta, Ms. Lang moved to Houston to attend Rice University. After graduation, she worked in the Rice development office, focusing on young alumni and annual giving. She brings significant experience to the areas of membership, retention programs, campaigns and development assessments.

Ms. Lang's heart for philanthropy is evident in her volunteerism with the University of Houston Nonprofit Leadership Alliance, where she teaches an eight-week fundraising course. She also continues to support Rice University, acting as the leadership chair for her class reunion and an instructor at the Glasscock School of Continuing Studies Center for Philanthropy & Nonprofit Leadership.
