Todd Hanselman


Michigan faith-based nonprofit, Samaritas, recently promoted Todd Hanselman to the position of vice president of human resources.

Hanselman joined Samaritas as director of human resources in 2016. Prior to working with Samaritas, Hanselman served as director of human resources for Judson Center in Chelsea. He also worked for United Methodist Retirement Community as executive director and director of human resources.

“I was drawn to Samaritas because of the impact it has on people across the state,” says Hanselman. “Being able to provide support and guide the satisfaction of almost 2,000 employees supporting so many more people in Michigan is exciting.  I love having purpose in my work, a focused team makes for greater change in our communities and greater fulfillment throughout the state.”

In his new role, Hanselman provides support and oversight to all Samaritas human resource endeavors throughout the state. Hanselman believes human-to-human connections significantly impact workplace satisfaction and makes accessibility a priority.  

“Todd Hanselman is a strong addition to our leadership team,” says Vickie Thompson-Sandy, president of Samaritas. “His service-focused 20 years of human resources experiences mirrors our dedication to helping every person we cross paths with achieve their full potential and build a satisfying life. That goes for the people who work for us as well as for the people we serve.”

Hanselman holds a bachelor’s degree in human resource development from Oakland University and is actively involved in various community organizations, including Peace Lutheran Church.

Founded in 1934, Samaritas operates more than 70 program sites in 40 cities throughout Michigan.
