Pat Janik, Macdonald Center’s Executive Director, has announced her plans to retire at the end of 2014. Pat, Macdonald Center’s second Executive Director, has served since 2007. “The board is deeply grateful to Pat for her extraordinary leadership of Macdonald Center over the past seven years. It would be difficult to overstate the many contributions she has made to the Center during her tenure as Executive Director,” expressed Susan Moscato, Board President.
Among her many accomplishments was the successful $12.5 million campaign to build our affordable housing apartment building. Pat also developed strong partnerships with other community partners serving the poor, developed our professional staff and management team, stabilized the Center finances, and helped to build a robust, engaged Board of Directors.
The board of directors is pleased to announce that it has selected Jon Ulsh, the Center’s Director of Development and Marketing as Pat’s successor beginning in January 2015.
An experienced and respected nonprofit leader, Jon has quickly become established as a member of the Macdonald Center community where he has already demonstrated his commitment to the people we serve and the work we do.
“We’re pleased to welcome Jon as our next Executive Director. His professional experience, passion for the work, along with the full support of the board and staff, make him the ideal person to become the Center’s next leader,” added Moscato.
