Lenape Valley Foundation CEO Transition Announcement

 

On April 1 2019, Lenape Valley Foundation (LVF) Board President Bob Rogala announced that LVF Chief Executive Officer Alan Hartl will be retiring after 38 years with LVF, including being its CEO for the past 27 years. Sharon Curran, the current LVF Chief Operating Officer (COO), has been unanimously approved by the LVF Board of Directors as Mr. Hartl’s successor and the next CEO. The LVF transition in leadership will be effective April 1, 2019.

Mr. Hartl is a licensed psychologist who joined LVF in 1981 and became CEO in 1992. LVF annual revenues have increased seven-fold under his leadership, projected to reach $21M in the current fiscal year and the number of employees has increased from approximately 100 to over 350 staff members. While serving as LVF CEO, Mr. Hartl assumed a variety of other leadership positions, including being on the boards of The National Council for Behavioral Health and the Rehabilitation and Community Providers Association of Pennsylvania. In 2010, he was appointed by Pennsylvania Governor Rendell to the Commonwealth’s National Health Care Reform Implementation Advisory Commission.

Mr. Rogala expressed the gratitude of the entire LVF family for Mr. Hartl’s contributions, stating “Lenape Valley Foundation has grown tremendously as a result of Alan’s leadership, dedication, and creativity. His advocacy on the state and national level has benefited our industry, Lenape Valley Foundation, and those we serve. Alan leaves behind an outstanding legacy.”

Mr. Rogala noted that LVF “is very fortunate to have an accomplished professional in Sharon Curran ready and able to assume the CEO position. Ms. Curran’s track record of excellence has gained her the respect and admiration of our Board of Directors, staff, payors, donors, consumers, and others associated with LVF. We are excited about the future of Lenape Valley Foundation with Sharon at the helm.”

Ms. Curran has served as an executive at LVF since 2006 and was promoted to COO in 2017. At LVF, she has been instrumental in the expansion of crisis service and outpatient service delivery. She is currently Co-Chair of the Bucks County Crisis Intervention Team Taskforce and past Co-Chair of the Bucks County Suicide Prevention Taskforce. Ms. Curran is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Pennsylvania and holds various other professional certifications. Her experience within the mental health and human services industry spans nearly 30 years. She holds a Master of Social Work from Ohio State University and a Master of Business Administration from George Washington University.

LVF’s mission is to partner with members of our community encountering mental health, substance use, intellectual or developmental challenges as they pursue their personal aspirations and an enhanced quality of life. LVF was founded in 1958 by community leaders who believed that persons with serious mental illness could be effectively treated in communities. For more than 60 years, LVF’s community based model has flourished on the strength of families and familiar settings, on the power of care delivered by compassionate professionals, and on the courage of those we serve.
