Longtime CEO, Sherry Peteson, to Retire on June 30th

Sherry Peterson

SHERRY PETERSON, LONGTIME CEO OF THE ALZHEIMER’S ASSOCIATION GREATER RICHMOND CHAPTER, TO RETIRE ON JUNE 30TH

Sherry Peterson, CEO of the Alzheimer’s Association Greater Richmond Chapter, will retire on June 30, 2015, after nearly 17 years of leadership to the Chapter.

“Under Sherry’s leadership, the Alzheimer’s Association Greater Richmond Chapter has grown exponentially, and now serves thousands of individuals annually throughout the region,” said Andrea Yoak, President of the Alzheimer’s Association Greater Richmond’s Board of Directors.

Peterson began her work with the Alzheimer’s Association Greater Richmond Chapter in 1998; a time when the Chapter included one full time employee. The Chapter now includes 16 employees with a headquarters in Richmond and regional offices in Fredericksburg, Gloucester, and Colonial Heights.

“It has been my honor to provide leadership to the Alzheimer’s Association and to serve the over 26,000 individuals in our chapter area with Alzheimer’s and their families and caregivers,” said Peterson. “I have been fortunate to have a strong board to help guide the chapter.”

“We are grateful for Sherry’s dedication, compassion and steady leadership and we wish her happiness in retirement,” said Yoak.

Peterson, a native of New York, and a University of Vermont and Virginia Commonwealth University graduate, has spent over 40 years working in nonprofits in Central Virginia, including 17 years in child welfare and 6 years in education.

“It has been a privilege to work with a dedicated and compassionate staff who provide support and guidance to those affected by this devastating disease,” added Peterson, “and I remain dedicated to the cause and the Alzheimer’s Association and hope we will soon achieve our vision of ‘a world without Alzheimer’s disease.’”

“The Board of Directors will select the Chapter’s next CEO over the coming weeks,” added Yoak, “and we are confident we will find an individual able to build upon the foundation set forth by Sherry and position the Greater

Richmond Chapter for success and additional growth as we continue to do all we can to meet the needs of those facing Alzheimer’s and their loved ones.”

She will join her husband, Bill Peterson, PhD, former Senior Policy Analyst for Virginia Department for the Aging, in retirement.
