The president and CEO of St. Joseph’s Villa, Roger Battaglia, will retire at the end of 2010.
Battaglia announced Thursday he plans to retire after 27 years with the organization. St. Joseph Villa’s board of directors will launch a national search this spring to find a replacement, Chairwoman Ann Oates said.
“St. Joseph’s Villa has been privileged to have had Roger Battaglia as its leader for so many years,” Oates said. “He has been a tremendous asset to this agency, leading with his intelligence, passion and devotion, always putting the quality of care for our kids and families first.”
Battaglia joined St. Joseph’s Villa as senior vice president in 1983, with responsibility for standard compliance, program development and direct supervision of the agency’s residential, group home, chemical dependency and community services programs. He became president and CEO in 1996.
During his tenure, Battaglia helped the organization implement a strategic plan, establish Monroe County’s first teen-mother/infant group home and open the state’s first adolescent eating disorders residential treatment program.
