Fred Manchur Named Kettering’s Next President and CEO

By Kevin Lavoie

The Membership Board of Kettering Adventist HealthCare announced last week that Fred Manchur, president and chief operating officer, will become the next president and chief executive officer beginning December 1, 2010. The Membership arrived at this decision following the development and implementation of a comprehensive transition/selection planning process.

Frank Perez, chief executive officer will become chief executive officer emeritus and will continue to provide assistance to the board during the transition through May 15, 2011.

“The debt the network and community owes to Frank Perez is enormous,” said Dave Weigley, chairman of KAHC. “Frank’s leadership has been extraordinary as he has continued to focus on and realize the mission far beyond our expectations. We are very blessed to have him remain in our service in his new capacity.”

The Membership and Boards are confident that KHN is well positioned during this time of transition, and expect to continue with a seamless transition of leadership, supported by an experienced leadership team who has continued, without missing a beat, to pursue the corporate vision of transforming the healthcare experience for Dayton’s communities.
