George Hinton is no stranger to leading an organization. He served as President of Aurora Sinai Medical Center for four years and has now taken on a new task… Interim CEO at the Social Development Commission (SDC).
Hinton was selected by the SDC Board of Commissioners in September to take the Interim post at the anti-poverty agency while a search is conducted for a permanent CEO. He comes to SDC from the Hinton Group which provides consultation to both for-profits and non-profits. He also has management experience with INROADS, Inc. and Children’s Health System of Wisconsin as well as with Aurora Healthcare system.
He shared Tuesday with staff at SDC Richards his goals and vision for the agency. He said he looks to help the agency continue to provide effective services to Milwaukee County residents. “The mission of the agency is critical to the community” he told staff. He said he will look to continue existing best practices at SDC and to also seek areas where programs and services can be improved to better help residents.
Mr. Hinton plans to immediately begin assessing the agency, its programs and practices so SDC can start to overcome challenges that it and other non-profits are facing these days. He added that he looks to apply business models to the agency in making its operation more efficient while at the same time maintaining a compassionate approach in working with low-income residents.
