Jim Broderick, current OFA Treasurer, has been named Interim Chief Executive Officer by the board of directors. Broderick’s appointment follows the unexpected death of John Holmes on Feb. 12.
Broderick is the owner of TFI Inc., a Westerville, Ohio-based company that provides interiorscaping, landscaping, wholesaling and limited grounds and property maintenance.
“Jim is well positioned to serve as the Interim CEO,” says OFA President Bobby Barnitz. “He is deeply involved in OFA, understands the strategic vision of the board of directors and is highly respected by our staff. We have a great team in place to ensure the association continues providing valuable programs and services to our stakeholders and management partners during this transition time.”
OFA says plans for Short Course, July 11-14 in Columbus, Ohio, are progressing as scheduled, including developing the 130-session educational program, the 1,500-booth trade show and dozens of networking opportunities.
A professional search firm with experience in the association management industry will be retained to lead the process of hiring a new CEO.
