Interim President Chosen for Foundation
Dee Perry has been named interim president of the BCH Foundation, effective Feb. 22.
Dee is well known in the Boulder business community thanks to her long and successful career in sales/marketing and financial management. During her career, she served as Controller for Celestial Seasonings and Controller and Chief Financial Officer for McDATA Corporation. She retired from McDATA in March 2001 after leading a successful public offering of that company.
Dee is also recognized for her contributions to our community through volunteer service on the governing boards of important local social service organizations. She is currently vice chair for the BCH Board of Directors and on the Advisory Board of the Center for Education on Social Responsibility at the CU Leeds School of Business. She has previously served on the boards of the I Have a Dream Foundation of Boulder County and TRU Community Care.
“I’m very excited about Dee agreeing to join the Foundation as the Interim President. We could not have found a better leader to fill that role,” said Dr. Robert Vissers, BCH President/CEO. “Dee has hit the ground running, and she and Virginia Carducci, the Interim Executive Director, are already proving to be a great team to lead us through this transitional period.”
Dee will initially focus on the Red Lipstick Fund, reengaging with all donors and potentially initiating a new capital campaign. She will also participate in the recruitment of the permanent Foundation President.
“I’ve been involved with the BCH Foundation for many years and I understand its significant role in supporting local health care,” Dee said. “It’s one of the most highly respected organizations in our community. I look forward to meeting our donors and continuing to build support for the Foundation’s mission of helping BCH to make a positive difference in the lives of others.”
Virginia will coordinate day-to-day operations of the Foundation and take a primary role in coordinating the upcoming Evening in Tahiti and Kid Links fundraising events.
