The Board of Directors of Community Head Injury Resource Services (CHIRS) is pleased to announce that Hedy Chandler has been promoted to the position of Chief Executive Officer (CEO). This promotion recognizes Hedy's exceptional leadership - at CHIRS, among other ABI organizations and among those living with ABI and their families.  It also recognizes that under her leadership the organization has grown in size, scope and complexity.

In her 37 years with CHIRS, Hedy has shepherded the organization from a small, transitional group home into a substantial and internationally recognized multi-service agency providing a broad range of supports to a clientele with diverse and complex needs.  Hedy is a registered Social Worker and has received a Master of Public Administration from Queen's University. She is a graduate of the University of Toronto, Rotman School of Management - Advanced Health Leadership Program and has an Organizational Leadership Certificate from the University of Missouri.  Hedy is also the Chair of Toronto ABI Network (TABIN) and a standing member of the Provincial ABI Network (PABIN) and is active within the provincial Neurotrauma Care Pathways project.

Please join us in congratulating Hedy.  We are confident that she will continue to lead CHIRS with her well-honed skills of balancing the organization's strategic directions with tactical day-to-day operations.
