Marc Krizack

Executive Director

I began working with Whirlwind founder Ralf Hotchkiss back in 1983, even before Whirlwind was Whirlwind, because I saw the potential for affecting the lives of millions of people in developing countries. In particular, I saw that good wheelchairs could lead to greater mobility and personal independence and would be the first step towards building strong community movements for disability rights and independent living throughout the developing world. As Executive Director since 2003, I have worked to unite cutting edge technology with political action, so that those who need a good wheelchair can get one and can also become effective advocates for their full inclusion into their communities.
