Executive of the Year Award finalist

Chuck Gehring has earned considerable success during his 17 years as president and CEO of LifeCare Alliance. The organization has tripled the number of clients it serves, increased fundraising from 4 percent to 25 percent of the agency’s revenue, raised $7.2 million to purchase and renovate a warehouse and reduced the agency’s reliance on government money.

Gehring spearheaded the group’s Success Model, which allows it to meet the needs of clients without a waiting list, and helped transform the Meals-on-Wheels delivery system to improve quality while reducing costs and employee turnover. The endowment he helped build will support the alliance for years to come.
