GRAND RAPIDS — Goodwill Industries lost a person who many called the heart of its company last night, when president Tina Hartley-Malivuk was killed in a car accident in Allegan County.

Hartley-Malivuk had been with Goodwill for 10 years, serving the last seven as president as well as serving on numerous community committees. Most of her success she shared and attributed to her staff of 400-plus workers.

“We are saddened by the news of her sudden death,” said Lisa Perry, vice president of marketing. “One of the strengths of Tina’s leadership was her personal relationship with the staff at all levels of the organization.”

Hartley-Malivuk, 50, was also named one of the Business Journal’s Most Influential Women earlier this year, due to her work in building Goodwill Industries for the last seven years as well as her other contributions to the community.

Hartley-Malivuk had been traveling southbound on 30th Street at 146th in Salem Township and was struck broadside by a 21-year-old man from Dorr, who was traveling westbound and failed to yield at the stop sign at the intersection, according to the Allegan County Sheriff’s Department. The accident occurred shortly after 7 p.m.

The other driver was treated and released from the hospital. The accident remains under investigation but the Sheriff’s Department said it appears seatbelts were used by both drivers and alcohol was not a factor.

Hartley-Malivuk is survived by her husband, Dave, and their two children.
