Appointed as CEO of Hands On Atlanta in the summer of 2016, Cranman was selected because of his background with other large nonprofit corporations, including serving as Vice President of Venture Development of Points of Light Foundation, and his continued dedication to civil entrepreneurship. At Points of Light, he started an impact investing fund and the first accelerator program that targets a social mission by engaging people.
Hands On Atlanta mobilizes volunteers to work with different nonprofit groups around the Greater Atlanta Area. In his role of President and CEO of the organization, Cranman is excited to continue impacting volunteerism, but is now focused on a more local and relatable level.
He will serve as an ambassador for community interests and citizen activation in engaging various groups to build a more vibrant Atlanta for all citizens.
Outside of Hands On Atlanta, Cranman stays active in the Atlanta community, serving on the Board of Directors at Leadership Buckhead and Kittredge Magnet School. He also is a Fellow at the Institute of Leadership and Entrepreneurship here at Georgia Tech.
