Judy Freundlich Tiell retires; JFCS begins CEO search

Judy Freundlich-Tiell

Jewish Family & Career Services has formed a search committee for its next CEO, following Judy Freundlich Tiell’s announcement that she will retire by December 31.
“The next CEO will find a robust foundation and will be well-positioned to focus on driving the organization forward,” said Peter Resnik, JFCS board president, in a prepared statement. “We believe the current landscape provides JFCS with new opportunities to build upon and expand its programs and services.”
Tiell joined the organization nearly 40 years ago as a social worker and rose through the organization. She has been executive director for 14 years.
Stephanie Mutchnick, who will chair the search committee, touted Tiell’s “energy, expertise, and passion,” saying she has strengthened the lives of thousands of Louisvillians, Jew and non-Jew alike.
In a statement, Tiell reflected on “the close professional and personal relationships over the years” as the JFCS head. She included “clients, staff, volunteers, funders, collaborators, industry colleagues and the board.”
The job description for the CEO position, and application instructions, can be found at JFCSLouisville.org.
In addition to Resnik and Mutchnick, the search committee members include Madeline Abramson, Bill Altman, Jordan Green, Jay Klempner, Beth Kuhn and Karen Sherman.
