A 2008 graduate of SUNY Cortland was recently named the Chief Operating Officer of the American Red Cross Western and Central New York Region.
Johnson City native Colleen McCabe has been with the Red Cross since 2012, serving for the past four years as Executive Director of the Southern Tier Chapter, based in Endicott.
“Colleen’s leadership has helped make the Red Cross a vital part of the Southern Tier community, and our regional team already knows and trusts her,” said Alan H. Turner II, Regional CEO of American Red Cross, WCNY. “I am looking forward to working with Colleen in this new role as we continue to make Western and Central New York a premier region.”
Following her graduation, McCabe acquired an MPA from Binghamton University and served as a Broome County Legislator from 2013-2014.
She will start her new position by the end of August.
“I’m honored to have the opportunity to take this regional leadership role,” McCabe said. “The work our staff and volunteers do across the region, and across the country, is amazing. I’m excited to help lead such an incredible team to even greater success.”
The American Red Cross shelters, feeds and provides emotional support to victims of disasters.
It also supplies about 40 percent of the nation’s blood, teaches skills that save lives, provides international humanitarian aid, and supports military members and their families.
The Red Cross is a not-for-profit organization that depends on volunteers and the generosity of the American public to perform its mission. For more information, please visit redcross.org or on Twitter @RedCross.
