In order to better serve our partner agencies throughout our continued expansion of programs and services, we have instituted a new organizational structure under our Chief Executive Officer that includes appointing a Chief Operating Officer, a Chief Program & Advocacy Officer, and a Chief Financial Officer.
Our new Chief Executive Officer is Molly Nicol. Molly brings decades of experience from both the for-profit and not-for-profit sectors, including Saint Gregory’s School, Catholic Charities, Albany Med, and 16 years at IBM. Having served on the Board of Directors of the Food Bank since 2014, most recently she served as the Interim Director for the Food Bank of the Hudson Valley and assisted the Food Bank with operations and philanthropic efforts during the pandemic.
Our new Chief Financial Officer is Renee Law, promoted from Controller after seven years with the Food Bank. Renee oversees our finance department, IT, and human resources.
Our new Chief Program & Advocacy Officer is Susan Lintner, whom many of you have gotten to know over the past 16 years in her roles as Director of Agency Services, and most recently as Director of Community Impact. Sue will oversee all our programs and initiatives and lead the charge on our hunger advocacy efforts.
Nick Pisani joined the team in April of 2021 as Chief Operating Officer, bringing 15 years of retail and wholesale management experience. He oversees warehouse operations both in Latham and our branch in the lower Hudson Valley, transportation, volunteerism, farm operations, and food industry relations.
