On Thursday, January 25, 2018, at First Presbyterian Church Fort Worth, Sixty and Better held our Annual Meeting and Report to the Community. At the event, community members celebrated Sixty and Better’s achievements and milestones from 2017, honored community partners and donors, and said farewell to retiring CEO Jerome H. Mosman.
“On behalf of the Sixty and Better Board of Directors and Staff, it is with a mixture of sadness and joy that we announce that CEO Jerome H. Mosman is retiring after after more than eight years with the agency and many decades in service to the community,” Sixty and Better Board of Directors President Keith Carney remarked at the annual meeting. “We are sad to see him leave our organization, but I’m sure that our National Parks will be delighted to have a new frequent visitor.”
During his tenure, Sixty and Better expanded programming from our signature meal program to also include transportation services and evidence-based health and wellness courses.
“With Jerry’s leadership, we’ve worked to end isolation so those in the prime of their life can stay connected, healthy, and active,” Carney said.
The Board of Directors and staff are working to ensure a smooth transition so that the organization continues to grow and function efficiently after his departure. Marcus Rockwell, Chief Operations Officer, will serve as interim CEO until a new hire is made.
Board Vice President Karen Ostrander has lead the Executive Search Committee since Mosman’s retirement announcement in October. “We have received a tremendous response and the Board looks forward to selecting a new CEO in the coming months,” Ostrander said at the annual meeting.
Members of the Executive Search Committee—all board members—include chair Karen Ostrander, President Keith Carney, Immediate Past President Carla Phillips, Marilyn Ackmann, Ossana Hermosillo, Holly Raeder, Ann Salyer-Caldwell, and Joseph D. Taylor. Taylor has also offered his organization’s offices and staff in the executive search process.
