Tempe, AZ, Dec. 23, 2013 - The Centers for Habilitation (TCH) in Tempe is pleased to announce the hiring of its new President and CEO, Shana Ellis of Tempe. Ellis, a Tempe native, was chosen from among 57 applicants throughout the country. She is expected to take the helm in January after the retirement of TCH's current President and CEO, Vicki Kringen.
Harvey Gibson, President of the TCH Board of Directors and chair of the search committee said although many talented and qualified individuals applied, Ellis was chosen for a variety of reasons.
"Shana brings a strong history of nonprofit management through two decades at the Tempe Community Council, as well as private sector experience and government relations through her role as a Tempe City Council member and leader on a variety of regional boards and associations.
"She is influential, respected and has a strong sense of vision and a passion for helping people with disabilities. Shana has deep roots in this community and she's been a longtime supporter of TCH.
Ellis said.
Ellis holds a Masters in Public Administration from Arizona State University and is currently in her second term on the Tempe City Council, serving as Vice Mayor from 2008-2010. She is the current Chair of the Metro Rail Board of Directors, and also serves on the St. Luke's Medical Centers Board and the Kiwanis Club of Tempe among others.
They will be led by Shana Ellis, a community leader with long history of experience in non-profit management. I have known Shana for many years and believe that TCH's Board of Directors made an excellent decision in choosing her to lead TCH.
