Announcing Our New CEO! by Anu Admin 13 July 2016 13:47

We are so excited to announce Mechele Pitt as the new CEO of Anu Family Services. Mechele started at Anu 10 years ago as a Social Work Supervisory, and has held many positions since. She has been Director of MN Programs, Chief Operating Officer, and most recently the Executive Director of Anu, where she oversaw employees and daily operations in Wisconsin and Minnesota. Mechele succeeds Amelia Franck Meyer in the position as Amelia moves to CEO of a newly created non-profit organization named Alia.

Anu and Alia will remain close partners. While Mechele and Anu will remain focused on creating permanent connections one child and one family at a time, Amelia and Alia will focus on transforming systems in the areas of permanence and wellbeing for youth and caregivers.  The two organizations will serve different groups—youth and families versus systems— but will work closely together with complimentary missions and a shared vision.

Over the past year, Mechele and Amelia have been working closely to ensure this transition goes smoothly and they are excited to start their new roles. Amelia hand-picked Mechele to succeed her as CEO. Michele’s extensive background in child welfare combined with her experience in the field make her an ideal candidate. Amelia states, “Mechele was the natural choice to be the next CEO. I am completely confident in her ability to ensure the continued success of Anu well into the future.”

Mechele is a strategic and proven leader. She has been a great contributor in helping Anu grow into the agency it is today. “I’m very excited to be working with Mechele,” says Michael Edman, President of our Board of Directors “Her experience and ideas are going to help sharpen our mission and expand Anu into new frontiers.”

We are excited about this new chapter for Anu and our new partner, Alia. Together, we see a very bright future of continued growth and innovation in helping children find connections to permanency. Please join us in welcoming our new CEO, Mechele Pitt!
