Philip Young, the immediate past Chair of the Board, said, “A strong board is important in fulfilling the mission. This is an impressive group of leaders who will help us thrive in unprecedented times. Not only is the economy in flux, but the number of people needing services is at an all-time high with 1 in 54 children being diagnosed with autism and even more being diagnosed with other mental health concerns. Glenwood touched the lives of more than 18,000 families last year. Our professional managers and staff can help these families.”

“I’m so pleased to be able to work with this excellent board and leadership team. And it’s especially gratifying that we have a former Junior Board member leading our group,” said Ken Oliver, Glenwood President and Chief Executive Officer. “Peter brings a great business acumen and a huge heart for our community and our mission. And he will be surrounded by a talented and inspired group of leaders on our Executive Committee and Board. We can move into the future with great confidence as we continue the Glenwood legacy of excellent service and compassionate care for those families we serve.”
