Phil Tremonti has been elected as the new Superstition Community Food Bank board president and Jim Walker is vice-president.
Mr. Tremonti, a resident of Gold Canyon, has had a long affiliation with the food bank as both a board member and consultant, according to a release.
He brings 50 years of experience in business revitalization, accounting and finance to his new position.
Mr. Walker, a resident of Queen Valley, has a doctorate in education and has held a variety of leadership positions at the secondary school, vocational and university levels for more than 50 years.
Mr. Tremonti replaces Robert Mohle who has completed his term as president but will continue to serve on the board.
“I’m looking forward to continuing Bob’s strong leadership and proactive vision,” Mr. Tremonti said in the release. “He set the tone for operational excellence and strategic funding initiatives which we will continue to build on.”
Shaunna Cooper-Smith will be the Superstition Community Food Bank board secretary. The position of board treasurer is currently open.
Three new members have been named to the board --- Randy Beringer, Lynn Hanson and Patricia Palermini --- who will be bringing their extensive business backgrounds to directing the future of the food bank, the release states.
“We are actively recruiting new board members with skill sets in the areas of accounting/finance, education, PR/marketing, social media, and fundraising," Mr. Tremonti said in the release. "I urge anyone with these skills to give us a call and join what is now the largest and most acclaimed food bank in the East Valley. It’s a few hours of very rewarding time devoted to helping make life a little easier for the most vulnerable in our community.”
