BLOOMFIELD –Gloria McAdam, Foodshare’s President and CEO, has accepted a position heading an organization that fights hunger in Northern New York.
McAdam will remain at Foodshare until Dec. 31, 2014 when she will assume the role of Executive Director of GardenShare in Canton, NY, near where she grew up. During the search for a permanent replacement, COO Christine O’Rourke will serve as interim CEO.
The organization has already activated its succession plan, which includes launching a nationwide search for a new President/CEO.
“We are indebted to Gloria for building a robust and dynamic organization with a strong mission and a deep bench of talented employees,” said Leslie Soler, Chair of Foodshare’s Board. “Her determination and passion for the twin issues of fighting hunger and ending its causes has been an inspiration for the last 30 years. We will miss her terribly, but her drive to build this organization into a fiscally sound force against hunger leaves it strong and resilient.”
