After 31 years of service, Planned Parenthood of Northern New England's President/CEO Nancy Mosher is retiring.
Williston (VT) – Planned Parenthood of Northern New England (PPNNE) announced today that its President/CEO, Nancy Mosher, will be retiring from the organization after thirty-one years of service.
"Being part of the PPNNE staff for three decades has been so formative for me, personally and professionally, that it is truly daunting to imagine saying goodbye," says Mosher. "I've had the chance to live my professional dream of supporting and nurturing an organization that lives its values, internally and in the world."
Mosher started her career with PPNNE in 1976 as a Nurse Clinician in Plainfield, VT. As Director of Program Services in 1996 she moved PPNNE from an almost exclusively fee-for-service business to one with arguably the most healthy payer mix of any affiliate in the country. In 2001, Mosher became President/CEO of PPNNE and spearheaded many important projects, most notable the "Real Life. Real Talk." social change initiative in Maine.
PPNNE has hired the firm Russell Reynolds Associates to run the search process for a new President/CEO. The PPNNE board of trustees will oversee the hiring process and anticipates announcing a new President/CEO in January.
"It's difficult to comprehend her departure, but her greatest gift to our organization is the strong, capable staff she has built over the years and the forward-thinking culture that will remain as her legacy," says PPNNE Board Chair, Creston Lea. "As the Board of Trustees searches for her successor, we do so with the confidence that comes in knowing what a powerful agency the next director will inherit."
In honor of Nancy's 31 years of service and commitment to patient education, PPNNE is creating an endowed fund to support healthy sexuality education in our health centers and communities.
