The MENTOR Network

Leadership Team

The Network’s leadership team, including our Executive Management team and our regional and corporate management team, is made up of talented professionals who are dedicated to the mission of The MENTOR Network and committed to maintaining its position as a leader in the field of health and human services.

Our leadership team includes individuals with both private- and public-sector experience in human services, as well as positions involving policy making, fiscal management, contracting and direct service. They share a commitment to the company’s mission and to the continued growth of its programs, enabling the organization to serve more individuals in communities across the country each year. Their track record of growth, quality, and innovation has helped the organization become a national leader in behavioral health.

“We have built an organization that allows us to support more people more effectively than we ever could as individual providers. We create and implement systems that help ensure quality services are delivered at the local level. Collectively, the resources and experience of The Network enable us to support individuals of all abilities, their families, our staff, payors and the communities in which we work.”
