Special Announcement from HMEA

Happy New Year! We've got some great news to share with you as we kick off 2020 here at HMEA!

The first piece of news is that starting on July 1, 2020, Jule will become the new President and Chief Executive Officer - CEO - at HMEA. We are really excited to share this news with you.

We have been working closely over the past five years planning for Jule to take over the CEO role. As many of you know, she's already doing most of the job and doing it really well. So, this transition will be easy.

And by the way…for those of you who don't know…Jule has been with HMEA for 32 years! She joined HMEA in 1987 as the agency's first clinical coordinator and has worked directly in or managed nearly every program, service, and administrative role within the organization. For the past 13 years, she has been a key member of HMEA's executive leadership team and has served as President/COO for the past six years, so she knows the organization pretty well by now!

As part of this planned transition, Mike will be moving into a new role here at HMEA as Executive Vice President for Government and Community Relations. In this role, he will continue to be an advocate and statewide leader on issues that matter to all of us, such as better pay and benefits for all staff.

All of us here at HMEA have benefited from Mike's incredible leadership over the past 20 years. During this time, he has led and overseen a tremendous amount of growth and positive change at HMEA. When Mike took over as CEO from HMEA's founder Susan Darnell, we were an organization serving 550 people. Today, we serve more than 5000 people.

Now, as Jule prepares to become only the third CEO in the history of the organization, she sees many opportunities to grow and improve the services we provide, to use technology to make all of our lives easier and more productive, and to ensure that our diversity work guarantees that this agency is a respectful and safe place for everyone we serve and all who work here. Jule also sees incredible opportunities to continue to develop partnerships that will allow us to build upon our many accomplishments and to ensure a long and bright future for this organization.

We look forward to continuing to work together with you to advance HMEA's mission to teach, support and empower people with developmental disabilities and their families to live meaningful lives of their choice.

We encourage you to reach out to either of us with any questions you might have. Thank you and Happy New Year!

Mike Moloney, CEO
