Board of Directors Appoints New Executive Director

July 7, 2020: We are thrilled to announce the Board of Directors has appointed Elise Geiger as the new Executive Director of Meals on Wheels Chicago. Having served as Interim Executive Director for the past year, Elise has guided the organization through structural improvements and worked to develop and implement organizational strategic planning, communication, and fundraising campaigns. Elise’s knowledge, skills, and experience are among our most valuable assets. Her leadership during these very challenging times has been exemplary, and we are confident that Meals on Wheels Chicago is in great hands with Elise at the helm.

Elise comes to her new role with over 25 years of experience in both non-profit and for-profit organizations. She has focused much of her career on change management to build positive, collaborative work-place cultures. Through the years, we’ve seen Elise’s ability to easily toggle between high-level strategic planning and operational-level execution, making her uniquely qualified to lead our efforts.

We are confident Elise is the right leader to work alongside staff, board, and our entire community as we build upon recent successes and continue working to better the lives of seniors and people with disabilities in Chicago.

Please join us in welcoming Elise to this new role as we forge an exciting new chapter of Meals on Wheels Chicago’s history!
