Rita Tweedie, chief fiscal officer of Niagara Cerebral Palsy, will serve as the interim CEO/executive director for the organization. This comes after current CEO John Reardon's mid-August departure to relocate out of the area. There, Reardon plans to continue his work in the human services field.
"It has been my honor and privilege to work with such a great staff, and wonderful individuals attending all of our programs, and a very supportive board of directors for 13 years," Reardon said. "I will certainly miss being at NCP, a tremendous organization that is considered a leader in our community. My 13 years at NCP have been fantastic, and I will have many wonderful memories that I will always cherish."
Tweedie will serve as CEO/executive director until Reardon's replacement is found. Reardon expressed confidence in the board's decision to appoint Tweedie.
"Rita has been with NCP for more than 25 years. I am very confident that she will do a superb job in this position," he said "I am confident that NCP will continue to be regarded as an excellent provider of critical services for many years ahead."
Tweedie has served as the agency's CFO since 1989, and oversees all accounting, finance, payroll and budget functions. She holds a Bachelor of Business Administration degree from Niagara University.
