Elisse Glennon Named Vice-President, Chief Administrative Officer of NJ Sharing Network

Elisse Glennon

NEW PROVIDENCE, NJ - Elisse Glennon has been named the vice-president and chief administrative officer of NJ Sharing Network. Glennon will continue to maintain her leadership role with the NJ Sharing Network Foundation.

In her new role, Glennon will work closely with President and CEO Joe Roth to develop and cascade the organization’s strategy and define long-term objectives that realize NJ Sharing Network’s core purpose of saving and enhancing lives. She will also provide support to Roth in navigating healthcare policy, while striving to increase the number of registered donors to help the nearly 5,000 New Jersey residents on the waiting list for organ and tissue transplant in New Jersey.

“With Elisse leading the NJ Sharing Network Foundation, our fundraising is at an all-time high, allowing us to better fulfill our mission of saving and enhancing lives through the miracle of organ and tissue donation and transplantation,” Roth said.

Glennon will support Roth in all operations of NJ Sharing Network, while continuing to head up the foundation. This year, Glennon and her Foundation team, on the heels of four 5K Walk and USATF certified races, will introduce a second 5K Celebration of Life event, to be held April 12 at Bergen Community College in Paramus, in addition to the 5K Walk and USATF Certified Race on June 7 in New Providence. 

The foundation hosts other events, including the annual Golf Classic, to be held Oct. 5 at Baltusrol Golf Club in Springfield, many sponsorship programs and the upcoming symposium on organ and tissue donation, to be held Nov. 14 in Woodbridge.

“In my expanded role, I look forward to working even closer on the issues that impact healthcare and our life-saving mission in New Jersey and building more connections to create deeper, lasting relationships with the communities in which we live and serve,” Glennon said.

“Since NJ Sharing Network was founded in 1987, the number of organs recovered in the state for transplant has quadrupled,” she added. “I look forward to building on the tremendous momentum and saving more lives.”

Before joining the Foundation in March 2010, Glennon worked for 18 years in non-profit management, strategic planning, fundraising, marketing and community relations. She was Vice President/Executive Director of the Palisades Medical Center Foundation, establishing the first endowment for the community hospital. Prior to joining the Medical Center, she held the position of CEO of the United Way of Greater Union County. Glennon began her career in the non-profit sector working with the Children’s Miracle Network at Children’s Specialized Hospital.

Glennon also is active in the community, serving on the Boards of the Meadowlands Regional Chamber, Community Health Charities, Eastwick Colleges and Moe-tion Dance Theatre. She also serves as a member of the faculty at Fairleigh Dickinson’s Center for Non-Profit Excellence and is actively involved with Leadership New Jersey and the Bucknell University Alumni Association.
