Philadelphia Federation Names Female CEO

Philadelphia’s Jewish Exponent is reporting that the Federation has named Naomi Adler, a United Way professional, to fill the vacant Federation CEO position:

“For the first time in its 112-year history, the Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia has selected a woman to lead the community’s central fundraising body.

The CEO-designate is Naomi Adler, a 47-year-old attorney who left the practice of law to pursue a career in nonprofit fundraising and management.

She began that phase of her career in the Jewish communal world, but spent the past 13 years as a top executive with the United Way. She currently is the president and CEO of United Way in Westchester and Putnam counties in New York, a post she has served since 2008.”
