An organization dedicated to the developmentally disabled has new leadership.

Benita Elliott takes over from Henry Sundquist as executive director of the Kindale Developmental Association.

“With her passion for service quality, her concern for the individuals and families we serve, and her dedication to the staff, contractors, and volunteers, I can think of no one better suited to lead this wonderful organization,” said Sue Phillips, association president.

Sundquist held the position for 28 years and Elliott takes up her new duties Jan. 7.

Elliott joined Kindale in 1995 and she is currently controller.

“It is an honour to be following in the footsteps of Henry who has done a remarkable job of leading Kindale from a small group teetering on the brink of insolvency to the strong, committed organization we are today,” said Elliott.

“I look forward to working with him during these next few months of transition.”
