CEO Announces New Vice President



CEO is happy to announce that Sue Rosa has been named the new Vice President for the organization. Ms. Rosa has been with the agency for more than two decades, and is advancing from her former role as Chief Administrative Officer. Ms. Rosa, a graduate of Russell Sage and former resident of Troy for over 20 years, has directed the Human Resources department for the agency for over 17 years.

"We’re so excited to see Sue become Vice President,” said Katherine Maciol, President & CEO. “I’m a fan of promoting talent from within and seeking out new opportunities for growth within our workforce. Sue has been pivotal to the success of our organization over the years, and will no doubt continue to drive tremendous value in this new role.”

The transition comes at a good time for the organization as it gears up for Community Action Month in May, and its annual Community Action Luncheon this fall.

“I’m looking forward to expanding my lens here at CEO beyond Administration and Human Resources to include more on the Operations side,” said Ms. Rosa. “In a lot of ways this new role is a rewarding culmination of my career trajectory over the years. I started out at CEO in direct service through our Early Childhood programs. I’m originally from the Bronx, and as a Hispanic woman who has struggled with pulling myself out of poverty and overcoming many of the obstacles our community deals with, I believe I really understand our clients and our workforce. Bringing that perspective to all that I do has helped me make a lasting impact here at CEO. I’m looking forward to bringing that experience to this new role.”
