“RHD was very lucky to have had Dyann as CEO in a time of great change and transition,” RHD Board of Directors’ Chairman Michael Denomme said. “All of us at RHD – from our staff, to our community partners, to the people we serve – owe Dyann a debt of gratitude for her leadership and vision and the empathy and humanity with which she treated people every day. Because of Dyann’s work as CEO, RHD is now well-positioned for the future, with a solid organizational structure and a strong and experienced Executive Team in place to assure that RHD will continue to thrive as a national leader in delivering the highest quality human services to people across the country.

“The Board feels tremendously fortunate to have Marco in position to step in as Interim CEO. Marco’s experience and leadership will be invaluable during this transition, and he is absolutely the right person to help guide RHD at this time.”

“I leave RHD with strong emotions, but with a firm belief that RHD is on sure footing with the Board, Marco as Interim CEO, and the strong Executive Team now in place. I will forever remain a passionate advocate of the heroic work done every day by the people at RHD.”
