After more than a quarter-century as president and CEO of ChildServe, Lloyd VanderKwaak has announced he will retire on June 30. During his tenure, ChildServe grew from a local human services agency that served 175 children into a nationally recognized pediatric specialty health care organization that serves more than 4,200 children in Iowa each year. “Lloyd’s vision and willingness to dream big led to ChildServe’s growth in its continuum of care, program development, geographic footprint and connection to families and the broader community,” said board Chair David Mackaman, who also served on the board in 1992 when VanderKwaak was recruited. Dr. Teri Wahlig, currently executive vice president and chief medical officer of ChildServe, will become the next CEO, and David McKenzie, currently executive vice president and chief financial officer, will fill the role of president and chief operating officer. Because of the growth and success of ChildServe and the complexity of its operations, the board decided to split the positions of CEO and president. “Teri and David bring complementary skill sets,” said VanderKwaak. “The board and I have great confidence they will build on ChildServe‘s mission-driven culture, growth and operational excellence.” After retiring, VanderKwaak will step into an advisory role for an additional year to help achieve a seamless transition.
