The board of directors for the Center of Workforce Innovations in Valparaiso has selected Lisa Daugherty as the organization’s next president and chief executive officer. Daugherty succeeds Linda Woloshansky, who announced her retirement after 20 years leading the nonprofit.
Daugherty currently serves as president and CEO of the Lake Area United Way. She will begin her new role March 1.
“I believe I can speak for the entire board in saying that we believe Lisa will bring the leadership, collaboration, creativity, and passion that will assure future generations are prepared to meet the workforce needs of the region,” said CWI Board Chair Glen Todd.
Todd says the search for Woloshansky’s successor was conducted by Organizational Development Studios, who pored over 75 applicants from across the country.
