Carl J. Zack
Interim Chief Executive Officer
I am honored to return to Jewish Family & Children’s Service as the Interim Chief Executive Officer, after serving as Chief Operating Officer from 2002 - 2006. Having worked as a senior executive for a range of different organizations, I look forward to bringing my skills in strategic planning, program development, fiscal management, and quality improvement to JF&CS, and I am excited to help continue to foster a culture of mentoring, collaboration, and teamwork among the remarkable staff at JF&CS. In the past, I served as Chief Executive Officer at Somerville Hospital, Hale Hospital, and Hebrew Rehabilitation Center. Most recently, I served as the Chief Operating Officer at 2Life Communities (formerly Jewish Community Housing for the Elderly - JCHE).
Chief Financial Officer
I lead the Finance and IT functions of JF&CS. This opportunity brings together skills developed during my career as a senior financial executive in the commercial sector and as a volunteer in the Jewish community. I am energized to work in a place that focuses its efforts on improving lives through a range of social services programming. I have an undergraduate degree from Northeastern University and a JD and LLM from Boston University School of Law.
Chief Operations Officer
I have had the good fortune to spend the past 29 years of my career with JF&CS, an organization with deep roots in the community, talented and dedicated staff, and a forward-looking approach to client services. My role at JF&CS has provided me with the exciting opportunity to blend my organizational, clinical, leadership, and social work skills, and apply them to areas of strategic planning, compliance and risk management, and staff development. Prior to working at JF&CS, I was the Director of Outpatient and Emergency Services at a community mental health clinic in Milford, MA, and a practicing mental health clinician.
Chief Advancement Officer
I am honored to serve as the Chief Advancement Officer at Jewish Family & Children’s Service. Throughout my life, my Jewish identity has been deeply entwined with tikkun olam (repairing the world) and tzedakah (justice). It is a joy for me to forge meaningful relationships with donors, connecting them with philanthropic opportunities that will truly improve the lives of the 14,000 clients JF&CS serves each year. For more than 25 years, I have had the privilege of serving the non-profit sector in varied capacities at Combined Jewish Philanthropies, American Jewish Committee, the Rashi School, Lahey Hospital, and Lindauer Global.
