YONKERS, N.Y. -- The ANDRUS board of directors has announced the appointment of Bryan R. Murphy as acting president and chief executive officer.
This promotion follows the resignation of president and CEO Mimi Clarke Corcoran. Murphy will work with the ANDRUS board of directors, management team and staff to implement this leadership change while overseeing ongoing work with children, families and partner agencies throughout Westchester County, New York State and beyond.
Murphy joined ANDRUS in 2010. Most recently, he served as the agency’s chief operating officer, where he was directly involved in planning the agency’s strategic direction and had full responsibility for all aspects of ANDRUS' day-to-day operations. Under his leadership, ANDRUS successfully expanded its campus programs, which included the multimillion dollar renovation of its historic Tudor residences for the 75 children who live on campus. Chairman John P. McLaughlin commented on behalf of ANDRUS’ board.
“We recognize Bryan's contributions to ANDRUS, including developing and leading a series of successful initiatives that are firmly rooted in the principles of sanctuary and have directly benefited the children and families we serve," said McLaughlin.
"In this new role, Bryan has the full and complete support of the board. We are confident in his ability to lead this agency through the next phase of its growth and evolution.” Murphy commented on the leadership at ANDRUS.
"ANDRUS has an extraordinary leadership team in place, and our programs serve as national examples, Murphy said. "The work we do changes lives for the better every day. As we teach the children we serve, change is inevitable and can be positive and strengthening. I am confident that our 14-year practice of sanctuary, our expertise in organizational change, and our role as stewards of the model give us the tools and preparation to manage this transition effectively and without impact on our day-to-day operations."
