Eras Senior Network Welcome New Executive Director

Eras Senior Network is excited to announce the hire of Darryl Anderson as its new Executive Director, effective April 5th, 2023. Anderson joins Eras Senior Network from the Racine Family YMCA, where he served as Vice President of Social Responsibility and Chief Operating Officer for two years.

Anderson brings over 10 years of leadership experience from both the YMCA and Boys and Girls Clubs to this new role. During his tenure at the Racine Family YMCA, he oversaw significant growth and expansion of programs and services, including the creation of a new community outreach initiative that provided resources and support to underserved populations.

“I am thrilled to join the team at Eras Senior Network and to continue the important work of serving older adults in Milwaukee and Waukesha counties,” said Anderson. “I am deeply committed to the organization’s mission and look forward to building on the strong foundation that has been established under the leadership of previous Executive Director, Kathy Gale.”

Anderson succeeds Gale, who served as Executive Director for 22 years. During her tenure, Gale led the organization through tremendous growth and expansion. Growing the organization by nearly 10-fold, Gale oversaw the expansion of Eras services into Milwaukee County, grew the number and types of support offered, and established Eras as a trusted leader and thought partner in supporting older adults in the state and region.

“We are thrilled to welcome Darryl to Eras Senior Network,” said Board President, Angela King. “His proven leadership, passion for serving the community, and commitment to innovation make him the ideal candidate to lead Eras Senior Network into its next chapter.”

As Executive Director, Anderson will be responsible for overseeing Eras Senior Network’s programs and services, managing staff and volunteers, and developing and implementing strategic plans to ensure the organization’s continued growth and success.
