Catholic Charities director retiring
June 21st, 2016
Though staying on the job until June 30, 2017, to “ensure a smooth and successful transition for his successor,” the retirement of Jeff Bialik, executive director of Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of San Francisco for almost eight years, has been announced. “The board of directors will launch an extensive and comprehensive search for a new executive director beginning this summer,” Catholic Charities said.
“Serving as executive director of Catholic Charities has been the most rewarding work of my lifetime,” Bialik said in a statement from Catholic Charities.
“Thanks to Jeff’s vision, skill and leadership, today Catholic Charities is financially stable, organizationally strong and able to quantify the positive impact our programs have had on people’s lives,” said Simon Manning, president of Catholic Charities’ board of directors.
With Bialik at the helm, Catholic Charities expanded programs and services; launched a new brand identity, logo and website; increased fundraising efforts and increased engagement with volunteers, Catholic Charities said. “Catholic Charities is successful today because of the hard work and commitment of our staff, volunteers, board, donors, community partners and clients,” Bialik, a parishioner of St. Isabella in San Rafael, said.
