What's in a CEO?

On National CEO Day, I want to take the time to acknowledge Kathrin Delutis, CEO of your Humane Society.

As President of the Board of Directors, I can attest to the importance of the relationship between the board that governs the organization and its leadership. Having a strong leader who is receptive, collaborative, and forward-thinking determines the outcomes of what can be achieved. Kathrin embodies a leadership style that is disciplined, thorough and goal-oriented while infusing care and understanding across her team.

In an organization that has over forty community programs and services, deals with legislation and individual municipality contracts, manages a team of over sixty employees, while being active with the board and communities we serve, Kathrin deserves all the acknowledgement and appreciation she can get. She has led the organization through a two-plus-year pandemic that has been full of hurdles, only to come out stronger and more clear of our strategic priorities than ever.

Thank you for all you do for people and pets in our communities, Kathrin.
