Robert Weed has been named the new CEO of Project SHARE by the organization’s board of directors.
Weed has been serving as interim CEO since January 2017 for the nonprofit food pantry. He previously served as treasurer for the organization.
“We’re very pleased to have Bob join Project SHARE on a permanent basis,” said Diane Baltaeff, board chair. “His contributions and his leadership over the past year have been invaluable. He became the natural choice as we conducted our search for a CEO.”
Project SHARE is an interfaith cooperative effort, involving local congregations, schools, civic organizations and businesses. Contributions of food, money and volunteerism provide essential basic assistance to more than 1,000 families each month in the region.
“The board, and this community, are looking forward to working with Bob as we continue to implement and execute our strategic goals. The future of Project SHARE is strong and promising as our ability to serve the needs of this community continues to grow,” Baltaeff said.
Weed’s professional career spans more than 35 years with a primary focus on leading teams through organizational change and systems integrations in the banking industry. He managed relationships with business owners and nonprofit organizations, and has experience in retail and commercial lending, mortgage lending and wealth management.
Weed has also served on the boards of Safe Harbour, the New Birth of Freedom Council of Boy Scouts of America and is an active member of the Hampden Township Veterans Recognition Committee.
Weed replaces former Executive Director Elaine Livas, who parted with the organization in January 2017 when she did not accept a role of founder and organizational ambassador following the development of a strategic plan that included an organizational assessment and a leadership reorganization.
