“Will there be an interim CEO?”
The board does not anticipate naming an interim leader. We intend to launch a search in short order and have Jeff hand off leadership to the new, permanent CEO in 2022.
“Is the mission changing?”
Our mission is steadfast and remains unchanged. The board believes much work remains to be done to achieve our vision of helping men and women serve God, neighbor, and society through their work, and we believe DIFW is poised to enter a new season of opportunity and effectiveness.
“What changes can we expect to DIFW programming?”
All programs and initiatives at DIFW, including Business for the Common Good coming up on Friday, February 25, will continue as planned during the search. Jeff will remain in the role of CEO until a new CEO has been named and officially starts in 2022.
The DIFW board is beginning the search for our next CEO in January 2022. We anticipate that future public announcements and details will be available this spring, with the hope of filling the CEO role before the end of 2022. Updates will be available on the DIFW website and communicated via email.
“Who do I talk to now?”
Please continue to communicate with whomever you are connected with at DIFW. Jeff will continue as CEO at least through the first half of 2022 and the board commits to keeping the DIFW community updated on the status of the leadership transition. Any questions can be directed to [email protected].
