Building the next generation of leaders for marriage, family, and sexual integrity

Our Team

ALAIN OLIVER
Executive Director

Alain Oliver is Executive Director of the Love and Fidelity Network and the Chief Executive Officer of LFN’s parent organization, the Collegiate Cultural Foundation. As a veteran nonprofit administrator, he has led the financial, operational and executive functions of nonprofit organizations with up to 100 employees and $4.5 million dollars in annual revenue. In his previous position, Alain worked on the social problems that affect maternity, birth, and child development. He joins LFN to tackle these problems from a different angle. The foundation of a flourishing society is the courtship-marriage-family continuum, which when executed well, is the greatest source of prevention of many of our social and economic problems. This continuum has been severely weakened through self-inflicted wounds and external pressures, and now requires renewed attention, support and mending. Alain looks forward to leading LFN in this work.

Alain holds a Masters of Business Administration from the Smeal College of Business at The Pennsylvania State University and a Bachelor of Arts in Economics from Emory University. Born in Cuba, he is bilingual in English and Spanish, and currently resides locally with his wife and four young children.

Brittany Basile is a graduate of Cairn University, where she received a Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Arts, summa cum laude. While in school she served as editor for the student newspaper and was active in student government, where she developed skills in content marketing and campaigning.
