DeWispelare will be taking over the role of President & CEO as a result of the pending retirement of current President & CEO, Jeff Moran. Moran will act as President Emeritus at Omaha Home for Boys through May 2019.
DeWispelare has been with Omaha Home for Boys since 2012 acting as Chief Operating Officer where he was responsible for the oversight of daily operations. He brings 25 years of experience in the nonprofit sector to the role of President & CEO having served previously as a Group Vice President with the YMCA of Greater Omaha.
“I am truly honored to begin serving as President & CEO of an organization with such a rich history of helping youth and families in our community,” said DeWispelare. “I see a great future for Omaha Home for Boys as we continue to adapt to the changing landscape of youth residential care and innovate to bring new programs and services to vulnerable youth.”
DeWispelare’s appointment as President & CEO comes after the Omaha Home for Boys’ Board of Directors approved a succession and transition plan to replace Moran in November of 2016.
“As we move into the next century of service, I can think of no one better equipped than Jeff to lead the Home through the many changes taking place in residential care for youth,” stated Moran. “I have seen what Jeff can accomplish first hand and I wholeheartedly endorse his selection as my successor.”
