The First Coast No More Homeless Pets (FCNMHP) Board of Directors has appointed Rob Levine to serve as the organization’s new CEO, effective immediately. Levine has been the Chief Development Officer for the Jacksonville-based animal welfare group since September 2016.
Board Chair Martin Rees, in noting the Board’s unanimous vote to support the selection, said, “Rob has been part of our organization for almost three years and has a deep understanding of our operations, our mission, and the important role that our team plays in the community.” Rees added, “Rob’s had the opportunity to work side-by-side with FCNMHP Founder Rick DuCharme so his appointment assures continuity and continued growth.”
Levine, a Fernandina Beach resident, brings significant and diverse experience to this role as both a senior corporate executive and as the leader of a number of non-profit organizations. He previously served as a regional CEO for the American Red Cross in South Florida and Northern New England and was an executive with the National Basketball Association for two decades, helping to build several domestic and international business units.
“I am honored to have the opportunity to lead the organization through its next phase of growth as we work to honor all that has been accomplished by our Founder and so many other animal welfare advocates,” Levine said. He added, “Every year our two hospitals see more than 100,000 dogs and cats, and it is a remarkable opportunity to build upon the work of all of our team members as we help pets, and the people they love, each and every day.”
