After 11 years at Catholic Charities of Wichita, including six as executive director, Wendy Glick has announced plans to retire in the next year and is actively supporting the process to identify her successor. The announcement was made by Chris Goebel, chair of the Catholic Charities Board of Directors.
Goebel praised Glick’s leadership through the pandemic and countless other challenges. “Wendy has provided stellar leadership for Catholic Charities of Wichita, always putting the needs of the organization first,” he says. “Her priorities were always focused on those served by Catholic Charities, and she has built an organization that is both nimble and purpose-driven.”
Goebel says an executive search team has been formed to select Catholic Charities’ next executive director, targeting first quarter 2023 for the transition.
