RTMC Executive Director Announcement
Mark McCaffrey named Rebuilding Together Montgomery County’s Executive Director
Rebuilding Together Montgomery County’s (RTMC) Board of Directors is pleased to announce the appointment of Mark McCaffrey as the organization’s new Executive Director, effective April 30, 2018.
Mark brings more than 15 years of working with local and national nonprofits and extensive experience in Montgomery County. He has represented the Town of Glen Echo as a council member, has served on the Board of Directors of the Montgomery County Fire and Rescue and is a graduate of the Montgomery County Police Citizens Academy.
“We engaged in an extensive search and transition process, spending several months identifying the qualities and talents RTMC needs in its next Executive Director,” said Jeffrey Drichta, RTMC’s Transition Committee Chair. “Of the more than 100 talented candidates who applied, Mark stood apart with his lifelong commitment to public service, building organizations and obvious passion for the work of RTMC and the Montgomery County citizens we serve and call our neighbors. We appreciate all the hard work of the RTMC Board, Staff, supporters, as well as Raffa, P.C. who guided the search process that led to our promising hiring of Mark.”
Previously, Mark was the Chief Operating Officer of Capital Area Food Bank, where he helped lead a $40 million dollar rebuilding and relocation project, taking the organization from its 60-year-old building to a brand new state of the art distribution center, allowing the organization to reach hundreds of people with fresh, healthy food. He has also served as the Chief Operating Officer and acting Chief Financial Officer of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Washington and as a Regional Director with the American Red Cross National Capital Region. In addition to his nonprofit experience, Mark brings renovation expertise, having run a home-renovations business the past few years.
Brian Pettit, RTMC’s Board President stated, “Mark has demonstrated strong leadership in the past and the qualities that embody RTMC in the future. We’re excited about him joining the organization and look forward to welcoming him at his first official outing: National Rebuilding Day, which takes place on Saturday, April 28th.”
“It’s a great honor to be selected for the position, and I am following someone [Christina Johnson] who did great work in this role for the past five years,” said Mark McCaffrey. “My hope is that, through our work, we can reach more and more people, whether it’s working with returning vets or individuals aging in place, to help make their homes safe and healthy, and contributing to healthier environments in Montgomery County.”
RTMC has helped hundreds of vulnerable and low-income people in Montgomery County by providing critical home repairs, energy efficiency upgrades and accessibility modifications. To learn more about RTMC and National Rebuilding Day, visit: https://rebuildingtogethermc.org/.
