Cara Turano Snow
Chief Development Officer
A native of Atlanta, Cara Turano Snow, was raised in Norcross and attended high school in Marietta. After college at the University of Georgia and graduate school at UNC Chapel Hill, Cara started her career as an in-house recruiter for a regional technology consulting firm, CTS. During the next 8 years, she moved into channel management and business development before becoming the director of the CTS Atlanta office in 2011. In 2013, Ms. Turano took a sales management position with SHI International Corporation overseeing a team of 10 and a $60 million territory. In 2015, she joined technology startup, CafeX Communications, as Vice-President of Southeast Sales and left as Director of Channel Management for the Americas to join the Technology Association of Georgia as Senior Director of Membership Sales.
A transition into a non-profit job evolved out of both a career in technology and very active volunteer participation that began when Cara joined the Junior League of Birmingham in 2004. In her first year, Cara worked with kids living at the YWCA homeless shelter. When she moved back home to Atlanta in 2009, the transfer to the Junior League of Atlanta was an easy and logical choice and Cara has gained invaluable experience in strategic leadership, membership sales and retention, sponsorship and advertisement sales, non-profit operational effectiveness, volunteer management, fundraising and board governance.
Outside of work and Junior League, Cara is involved the Atlanta Beltline Young Leaders Council, the Botanical Gardens Associates program and serves as the Vice-Chair of the Executive Committee for the UGA College of Education Board of Visitors. Cara has been nominated for the Women in Technology Woman of the Year, a Girl’s Inc. BOLD award and a TAG Diversity in the Workplace award as well as named an Atlanta Business Chronicle Top 40 Under 40 in 2012 and a University of Georgia Alumni Association Top 40 Under 40. An avid runner and 15-time marathon finisher, Cara is recently married to Ricky Snow and adores living in the Old Fourth Ward, reading and managing her 5 pound chihuahua, Toby.
