Board appoints co-CEOs to lead SRCHC during transition

SRCHC’s two directors Jason Altenberg, Director of Programs and Services, and Shannon Wiens, Director of Organizational Health Systems were jointly appointed as interim Co-Chief Executive Officers effective September 6.

Lynne Raskin retired from her position as Chief Executive Officer at South Riverdale Community Health Centre effective September 5, 2019.

Ms. Raskin’s leadership established a resilient organization, well positioned to continue advancing SRCHC’s vision of empowered, healthy and thriving communities where everyone belongs. In the interim, the Leadership Team will continue the organization’s good work and rely on internal management resources to maintain the vision, mission and values of the organization.

The Board of Directors has a plan in place around the search for a new CEO to lead the organization with a view to ensuring a smooth transition during this change of leadership. The Board has engaged the services of a reputable executive search firm in the process to appoint a suitable and qualified successor who will meet the needs of the organization. This process could take four to six months.
