Cindy Dyar

Operations Director

Cindy graduated from DePauw University in 1998. She worked in the wine industry in sales, marketing and management for over 10 years and then moved into the non-profit industry with a management position for the NC Winegrowers Association. Leveraging experience with the Winegrowers conference events and board members, Cindy took on the Staglin Music Festival for Mental Health as the Managing Director in 2008 and quickly grew to serve as the Executive Director of IMHRO/One Mind Institute. With the consolidation of One Mind Institute and One Mind for Research, Cindy took on the role of Operations Director and helped facilitate the successful merge of the two related organizations into One Mind. Progress over the last 12 years while Cindy has been working hard for One Mind include: production of the Music Festival for Brain Health at Staglin Family Vineyard, one of the nation’s most successful brain health fundraising and convening events featuring entertainment such as Sheryl Crow, Jennifer Hudson, and Tim McGraw; funding of 32 Rising Star Research Awards; fiscal sponsorship of five other non-profit programs at their launch; and fiscal management of five divisions. Cindy brings a can-do attitude to the cause and the organization and remains as committed to accelerating brain health research as ever.
