Community foundation hires president
A community foundation in the region has named its new president.
Hadley Streng will take the role at the Grand Haven Area Community Foundation, effective Oct. 18, the organization said last week.
Originally from Grand Haven, Streng has spent the past two decades in the Chicago area.
She spent the last 10 years in multiple roles with Centegra Health System, most recently serving as the SVP of strategy and development for the organization and its foundation in Crystal Lake, Illinois.
Her background includes strategic planning, community outreach and nonprofit governance.
“It's her strength in executing strategic plans and guiding organizations to the next level of excellence and impact that made her our ideal selection,” said Randy Hansen, board chair, Grand Haven Area Community Foundation.
Prior to Centegra, Streng was a manager of strategic and operational consulting at Huron Consulting Group and a manager at PricewaterhouseCoopers, both in Chicago.
“It is an honor to be selected to serve as the next president of the GHACF,” Streng said. “I look forward to working with the board, staff, donors and community members to continue to advance the incredible work the foundation does in the community.”
As a Grand Haven High School student, Streng was part of the foundation's original youth council, which is now approaching its 30th anniversary.
“That experience is what ultimately led me to look for a career in nonprofits,” Streng said.
She has also worked with the McHenry County Economic Development Corporation, allocations committee for the United Way of Greater McHenry County and Leadership Greater McHenry County.
She holds a B.S. from Miami University and an M.B.A. from the University of Georgia.
