The Board of Directors of Kerry's Place Autism Services (KPAS) is pleased to announce Sally Ginter as the new President and Chief Executive Officer of Kerry's Place Autism Services effective immediately. Sally will be responsible for driving the organization to the next level, building on the solid foundation and remarkable momentum achieved under Dr. Glenn Rampton's leadership.
Sally returns to Ontario after spending several years in the Southern Interior of British Columbia, most recently providing leadership as Regional Director for the Canadian Cancer Society where she oversaw a registered workforce exceeding 5,000 people over 44 communities.
Sally has a personal understanding of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and the associated challenges facing individuals and their families. She has great respect for the dedication of staff who provide supports and services across the sector and is committed to the continued development of Kerry's Place Autism Services as a national leader in helping individuals and their families affected by an ASD.
The Board of Directors congratulates former KPAS President and CEO Dr. Glenn Rampton upon his retirement and thanks him for his many valuable contributions and tremendous commitment over the past 13 years.
Kerry's Place Autism Services was founded in 1974 by a group of devoted parents in Clarksburg Ontario who courageously opened their door to a handful of teenagers with an ASD, becoming a catalyst for change in how we understand and support people. Today, KPAS is recognized as a leader in the sector providing programs and services to children, youth and adults with ASD/PDD and their families throughout Ontario. KPAS assists over 6,000 children and adults through vocational, community outreach and residential supports with a goal to help each person supported achieve maximum potential to grow and move towards independence and be accepted as full and equal members of their community.
