FREELAND, Md. — Sept. 2013 – Penn-Mar, the non-profit human services organization serving individuals with special needs in Pennsylvania and Maryland, names Denise Hargrove, Associate Director, Deloitte Consulting, Md.; and Paul Shifrin, CPA, Partner, Stout Causey and Horning, Md.; as its newest members on its Board of Directors.
In addition, Penn-Mar also names Anthony Gallo, Managing Director, Wells Fargo Securities, LLC, Md., as its newest board Chairman, succeeding Morton F. Zifferer, Jr., Chairman and CEO of New Standard Corporation. Until his recent election to board chair, Gallo served as the board’s Vice Chairman for three years.
“We are fortunate to have Denise Hargrove and Paul Shifrin as the newest members on our Board of Directors, and Anthony Gallo as our newest board chair” says Gregory Miller, Penn-Mar’s President and CEO. “Their combined years of professional business development and leadership experience will be an enormous asset to Penn-Mar as we continue to grow and serve the needs of men and women with intellectual and developmental disabilities in our communities.”
Penn-Mar Human Services’ founding dates back to 1980, when a group of concerned families from Maryland and Pennsylvania met to discuss the future of their sons and daughters with intellectual and developmental disabilities. With no local human services agency and thus no program designed to meet the diverse needs of their adult children, the families created their own program that began in the Methodist Church of Maryland Line, Md. From that humble and courageous beginning a $600,000 start-up emerged that has grown to become Penn-Mar, a $21.5 million human services agency with a range of educational, vocational and residential programs and services in Maryland and Pennsylvania.
