Mac Macsovits, Executive Director
Mac has made a career working in the non-profit sector. Having begun his career teaching at Cherry Creek High school, he then moved on to The Nature Conservancy (Colorado Field Office) where he was a Major Gift fundraiser.  Responsible for raising gifts of over $50,000, his time at TNC was spent building relationships within Colorado, and also nationally. After the birth of Guion, his first son, Mac and his wife Rebecca learned that Guion had Down syndrome. Mac decided to leave TNC due to a heavy travelling schedule to concentrate on learning more about his new son and the world of Down syndrome.

Mac began volunteering for Special Olympics Colorado which eventually led to a paid position as the Director of Development for that organization. Having been a part of the RMDSA family he was aware that the organization was in the process of searching for a new Executive Director, so Mac made it known that he had an interest in the position and formally joined RMDSA as the second Executive Director in February of 2009. Mac has his Bachelor of Science from Pfeiffer University in North Carolina and his Masters of Education from Vanderbilt University: Peabody College. Mac and his wife Rebecca have three children; Guion, Hoke, and Rae.
