The board of directors for Indianapolis-based nonprofit Noble Inc. has selected Wade Wingler as the organization’s next president and CEO. Wingler will succeed Julia Huffman, who is retiring at the end of March.
Wingler currently serves as vice president of programs at Easterseals Crossroads in Indy. In that role, Noble said, he oversees community day services, autism programs, assistive technology and brain injury resource facilitation services.
Noble Inc. provides a variety of services for individuals with disabilities, such as education training, community employment, entrepreneurial services, behavioral therapy and community living, among others.
Board Chair Jenna Barnett said having Wingler at the helm will position the nonprofit for growth.
“We are confident that Wade will help Noble build on its 70-year history of impacting children and adults with disabilities and their families,” Barnett said in a news release. “He is a strong, thoughtful leader with a long history of cultivating constructive relationships across the corporate, government and non-profit sectors.”
Wingler will begin his new role March 20, and Noble says he and Huffman will work together over the next several weeks to ensure a smooth transition.
