Spe­cial Announce­ment from the CEO

Dear KYC Community,

It is with very mixed emo­tions that I share with you that I have been giv­en the oppor­tu­ni­ty to relo­cate to north­ern Cal­i­for­nia near my imme­di­ate fam­i­ly. I have tru­ly loved my three years at KYC and the work we do to serve peo­ple of all ages in our com­mu­ni­ty. I’ve lived and worked in the Chicagoland area for most of my pro­fes­sion­al life, and a cross-coun­try adven­ture is both scary and excit­ing. How­ev­er, relo­cat­ing brings my chil­dren, moth­er, sis­ter, and me with­in quick dri­ves of each oth­er: a joy we haven’t had in decades. This oppor­tu­ni­ty to move was cer­tain­ly a sur­prise, but one I have cho­sen to pur­sue for my family.

It has been my dis­tinct priv­i­lege and hon­or to lead KYC through great orga­ni­za­tion­al change and growth. Work­ing with an incred­i­ble team and all of you has been a high­light of my career. In my new role lead­ing the Cal­i­for­nia oper­a­tions and strate­gic growth for the Gate­way Foun­da­tion, I will look back with grat­i­tude and hope that I may encounter peo­ple as won­der­ful as you in the next stage of my pro­fes­sion­al journey.

More com­mu­ni­ca­tion will fol­low as we make this tran­si­tion, but I want­ed to share this news as quick­ly as pos­si­ble. The Board of Direc­tors has estab­lished a search com­mit­tee and is active­ly seek­ing the next Pres­i­dent and CEO for KYC. If a new CEO has not been select­ed by my last day on May 4th, a Board Mem­ber will be appoint­ed as the inter­im CEO.

I am deeply hon­ored to have been part of KYC’s com­mit­ment to our com­mu­ni­ty and know that it will con­tin­ue to grow and thrive for many years to come. Thank you all for mak­ing KYC such a spe­cial place for clients, staff, and all who come through our doors.

With eter­nal gratitude,

Susan
