CJE’s Board Chair Kalman Wenig and Judy Smith, Past Board Chair and Search Committee Chair, announced that Dan Fagin has been selected to lead CJE as its new President and CEO, effective August 13.
Fagin comes to CJE with extensive experience in the healthcare industry, most recently as CEO of Cedar Village Retirement Community in Mason, Ohio. Cedar Village is a nonprofit continuing care retirement community with a mission similar to CJE’s mission—providing services and supports for older adults and their families. “His passion for driving results based on the development of effective and creative long-range plans, combined with a real interest in getting to know CJE’s residents, clients and staff were what made Dan stand out as a candidate,” noted Kal Wenig. Judy Smith added, “Dan is an excellent match for CJE. We are thrilled that he brings a wide-range of knowledge and can look at CJE with fresh eyes so we can be better prepared to serve a more diverse spectrum of older adults—from Boomers to Holocaust survivors… in the suburbs and in the city.”
A Cincinnati native, Fagin was COO of The Jewish Federation of Cincinnati from 2012-2015 where he developed a new shared service organization for Jewish communal agencies and congregations and launched SAFE Cincinnati, a Jewish community security and disaster planning initiative.
From 2002-2012, he was a Managing Director and Healthcare Industry Leader for Protiviti Inc., a global consulting firm that helps business leaders identify, anticipate and solve critical business problems.
