Dodge will succeed the current President Floyd Moon, who has held the position since 2008.
Moon announced his retirement earlier this year after 21 years of service.
Additional information is provided by J.M. Murray:
Ernest Dodge was originally hired in July 1996 by then former JM Murray president Roy Susskind to oversee the Custodial Services division of the company. After successfully managing those services, his responsibilities were expanded to other businesses of the organization throughout his 21 years of employment. In the most recent years, he has served as Director of Operations, focusing on daily production and shipping needs to support the company’s vast array of private, state and federal customers.
In his new position as President, Mr. Dodge will lead the organization in the growth of business and services in order to continue the vision and mission first established by founder John Murray over 50 years ago. “I am humbled by the honor, responsibility and opportunity presented to me by the JM Murray Board of Directors. “I look forward to working with our dedicated and professional staff to provide services that enhance the quality of life of those we serve and their families.”
JM Murray provides employment, training and services to over 850 people with disabilities annually and recognizes that work plays an invaluable role in providing individuals with a sense of self-worth and achievement. For those who seek opportunities other than work, a variety of services and activities that focus on volunteer, support, and personal growth are provided. As a longstanding employer in Cortland County, JM Murray employs a dedicated staff of 250 employees who work on site and in the Cortland community. JM Murray business and administration operations are located within a 100,000 square foot facility at 823 NYS Rt. 13. The services and employment divisions are located at 4057 West Road.
Dodge will assume the role of President from Floyd Moon on April 1, 2018. “I wouldn’t be succeeding Floyd if he hadn’t been so supportive throughout his tenure. I’ve learned how valuable good leadership and character are to a company.”
