Bethany Christian Services

Chris Palusky will join Bethany Christian Services, a nonprofit focused on bringing and keeping families together, as president and CEO following the retirement of Bill Blacquiere.

 

“Having supported children and families in crisis for nearly 75 years, Bethany is one of the most well-respected organizations throughout the world, so I’m honored by the opportunity to join an exceptional staff of caring professionals committed to aiding vulnerable children,” says Palusky.

 

Palusky brings more than 20 years of experience to Bethany including serving as U.S. vice president of private funding and emergency affairs at World Vision, and working for World Relief. In his new role, he will be responsible for developing long term strategy and direction, leading innovation change, and building relationships.

 

“Bethany’s heart is for children and we want to continue serving as a driving force of positive change for families around the world,” says Garth Deur, board chair for Bethany. “Under Bill’s guidance, Bethany has expanded its influence on countries hoping to enable children to remain in their home country with loving families. It’s remarkable how much progress has been made in this area and the prospects for continued growth on such efforts moving forward. We are grateful for Bill’s years of leadership and are confident that Chris is the ideal candidate to take the mantle and lead the organization for years to come.”

 

Blacquiere will facilitate the transition and provide counsel to Palusky as he enters his new position.
