DCM Associates, Inc. is pleased to announce that it has successfully concluded the search for a dynamic President & CEO to work closely with the organization's Board of Trustees to provide overall strategic and operational leadership for the organization.
Vision Loss Alliance of New Jersey (VLANJ) is dedicated to helping individuals who are blind or who have low vision live and function better at home, at work, and as active, contributing members of the community. Throughout its 75-year history, VLANJ has been a thought leader in programs and services offered to those with profound vision loss. What began as a summer residential camp for blind women has grown into an organization that offers unique, state-of-the-art programs. VLANJ has been ahead of its time every step of the way.
William "Bill" Schuldt brings tremendous experience in leading nonprofit organizations, including 32 years as a member of the team at Spectrum for Living. During that time he held several positions with increasing levels of responsibility, including 13 years as Vice President of Operations. Bill is a strong communicator and highly successful in building and maintaining relationships with stakeholders and community partners.
"I'm excited for the opportunity to join VLANJ and to be a part of this well established agency," Bill says. "The passion of VLANJ to serve the blind and low vision community is an inspiration. DCM Associates was a pleasure to work with. They represented the agency well and helped me navigate the transition process."
"The Board of Trustees and staff of VLANJ are thrilled to welcome Bill as our new President & CEO," says Board Chair Carl R. Augusto. "Bill brings strong leadership skills and experience as well as a passion and demonstrated commitment to enriching the lives of people with disabilities. Bill is well-suited to lead us toward continued growth and new heights of accomplishment."
Of the board's experience working with DCM Associates, Carl adds, "Dennis C. Miller and his team conducted a far-reaching national search for our new President & CEO, communicating effectively throughout the process and bringing to us very well-qualified candidates for our interviews. Dennis' team exceeded our expectations in managing the process within a tight time frame. I've been intimately involved in more than a half dozen searches and this was the best search I've experienced."
Please join us in congratulating Bill, Carl, and the staff and clients of VLANJ!
