2018 has been an exciting year thus far for our organization, with many new developments under way.
One new development we are pleased to share, Jim Wigfall, a long-standing executive leader for Boeing, has been named our new Chief Executive Officer.
We anticipate his 30 plus years of executive experience will enhance the vitality of the organization and vision of changing the health outcomes and quality of life for the older adults and adults with disabilities we serve. Jim brings a sound business acumen, a vast understanding of a team-based systems approach to continuous improvement, as well as experience in fundraising, policy, and advocacy.
Jim is looking forward to developing a strategic focus for the future and steering Sound Generations in an exciting new direction by building on the organization’s assets of outstanding staff and programs. We are so very fortunate to secure a strategist like Jim Wigfall. I am confident he will lead this organization towards a path of sustainable growth.
As a baby boomer, Jim is actively assessing the desires of his aging parents who have emerging needs. They strive to actively lead their best lives possible while maintaining their independence. He is personally and professionally motivated to advance the mission of Sound Generations.
In his community activism, Jim holds board membership with the King County Library System, Special Olympics Washington, and the Citadel School of Business Advisory Board, his Alma mater. He holds a Master’s in Business Administration from the University of Tennessee. As Sound Generations’ next leader, this extensive knowledge will serve us well. As the board chair, I look forward to working with him.
Together, we are building a community in which everyone can age with dignity and respect. We are immensely grateful for the investments we receive from our many supporters and community members, and hope you join us at an upcoming event where you can meet him and see why we are so excited for his arrival.
