Changing of the Guard at The Arc Michigan

June 30, 2015



As many of you know, today is my last day as Executive Director and CEO of the Arc Michigan. It doesn’t mean I’m riding into the sunset or banned from the premises. It does mean I am turning over the reins, operation and administration of the agency to an extremely competent new Executive Director/CEO.

It is with great enthusiasm and considerable pride that I leave this wonderful organization in the hands of the supremely talented Sherri Boyd. This “succession” has been in the works for some time and, thanks to the leadership and foresight of our Board of Directors, it has been a smooth transition. Many of you know Sherri and respect her and her impeccable values as I do. The Arc will indeed be in capable hands.

Personally, while I will further reduce my time, I have been asked by Sherri to continue to direct the Arc’s Public Policy efforts and provide some of the trainings to which we are committed. I hope you will accept my thanks for all the assistance, support and education so many of you have offered. My tenure has proved to be exciting, rewarding and deeply enjoyable for me. Working with and on behalf of so many of you, has made it so.

Please join me in wishing our brave new leader the best of times and offering her our utmost support!


Thank you,
