SAGE Names Jenny Executive Director, Sullivan Deputy Executive Director

Fred Jenny has been named Executive Director of SAGE Eldercare.

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.

Jenny joins SAGE from the Long Island Alzheimer’s Foundation (LIAF) where, since 2009, he was responsible for daily operations, budget development, strategic planning, and program development.  Prior to working at LIAF, he was the Founding Executive Director of Senior Care and Activities Center in Montclair, an adult day program.   Jenny received a BA in American History, with a minor in Public Administration, from Montclair State University, and a MEd in Gerontology and a MA in Community Recreation from Columbia University.  He and his wife Betsy reside in Verona. 
“It’s humbling to become part of an organization that has, for so long, been in the forefront of providing vital services to the aging and their families,” noted Jenny.  “SAGE is committed to helping area seniors remain independent and active in the community for as long as possible.  That has been my mission throughout my professional life, as well, and I look forward to continuing this important work together.”

Former board of trustee member, Angela Sullivan, will be assuming the new position of Deputy Executive Director for SAGE, after filling in as Interim Executive Director for the past five months.  Her position will encompass management of the day-to-day operations of the organization, as well as oversee all programs and services at the agency.

“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.
