SUMMIT, NJ – Fred Jenny has been named Executive Director of SAGE Eldercare, the non-profit organization dedicated to providing programs and services for older adults and their caregivers. As Executive Director, Jenny will oversee the overall operations and the fundraising component of SAGE Eldercare. Jenny, whose tenure begins February 4, replaces Jessica Rosenzweig Gruber, who stepped down from the position in August 2014.
“We are very fortunate to have both Fred and Angela come on board to lead the operations of SAGE as we evolve to meet the needs of the ever-increasing population of older adults in the community,” stated Kitty Hartman, SAGE Eldercare Board of Trustees President. “Fred comes to SAGE with more than 30 years’ experience as an executive director with Senior Care and Activities Center in Montclair, which he also founded, and most recently with the Long Island Alzheimer’s Foundation. Angela’s past experience and education as a hospital administrator will pair nicely with this new position at SAGE. I’m sure that, together, they will be doing great things for our clients and the community, as a whole.”
Angela Sullivan spent much of her career in hospital administration at New York Presbyterian Hospital / Weill Cornell Medical Center, working in a variety of departments in implementing operational and financial management and budgetary practices. She received her BS in Health Care Policy, Planning and Administration from New York University’s Stern School of Business and her Masters of Public Administration (MPA) in Healthcare Finance at NYU’s Wagner School of Public Administration. She is a volunteer reader for EIES of New Jersey, providing access to the printed word for the blind and visually-impaired. She resides in Short Hills with her husband Peter and their four children.
“In this new role at SAGE, I look forward to helping the organization move forward with new and innovative programs for local older adults and applying my educational and professional backgrounds to implement some new ‘best practices’ in the daily operations,” noted Sullivan.
