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.
Senior Vice President of Operations
I have had the good fortune to spend the past twenty-four years of my career with JF&CS, an organization with deep roots in the community and a forward-looking approach to client services. I have been continually encouraged and supported in my professional growth and have appreciated the opportunity to blend my clinical social work, organizational, and leadership skills of our organization. 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.
Senior Vice President of Institutional Advancement
I am honored to serve as the Senior Vice President of Institutional Advancement at Jewish Family & Children’s Service and return to my professional work in the Jewish community. Throughout my life, my Jewish identity has been deeply entwined with tikkun olam and tzedekah. I look forward to making deep and meaningful connections with donors and identifying philanthropic opportunities that will strengthen this remarkable organization for generations to come. I began my career in development at Combined Jewish Philanthropies and have led development at the American Jewish Committee, the Rashi School, and Lahey Clinic. Most recently, I served as a consultant and executive recruiter to local and national nonprofit organizations.
