Interim Executive Director at Peace House

As the Search Committee of Peace House worked through the process of finding the right candidate to be the new Executive Director it was evident that the old traditional hiring process was not working. They determined that hiring an Interim Executive Director would be beneficial to provide forward movement with growth and future plans while the Search Committee continued their work.

Julie DeLong was hired at Peace House, a 501c3 organization dedicated to ending family violence and abuse through education, outreach, support services, and shelter. Julie is stewarding the organization through leadership transition while identifying and addressing organizational gaps, and assisting the Search Committee and Board as necessary to hire the permanent director. Other projects underway include the annual fundraising luncheon, a website redesign, and new donor database.

Julie’s strong nonprofit leadership and management background have given the Peace House team the benefit of her experience in this critical moment of leadership succession.

I found Julie DeLong to be a valuable asset to our organization. She possesses the needed experience, education and knowledge to support an organization in transition. She is a team-builder and strategic thinker with a focus on what is needed at the moment as well as providing preparation for the future transition.
