Sean Inoue joined the American Red Cross Western LA Chapter in July of 2021. With more than a decade of leadership experience with nonprofits, including his most recent role with Red Cross Biomedical Services, the organization is proud to welcome Sean as the new executive director for the Western LA Chapter. He will fill the new role following the retirement of Julie Thomas, who has dedicated nine years of service to the organization.Native to Southern California, Sean found his passion for nonprofit work when he started volunteering with The Laurel Foundation, an organization focusing on providing vital services to families and children infected/affected by HIV/AIDS. Seeing the impact that basic shelter and support services can have on vulnerable communities inspired him to continue his work serving others. He decided to commit his career to the nonprofit he found most inspiring, the Red Cross, and in his commitment, he successfully managed several blood collections territories throughout the greater Los Angeles area.
