At the January 24 ACC Board of Directors meeting, President Roger Willis announced that ACC Community Executive Officer Jenna Kohl offered her resignation, which was effective February 15, in order to serve as the Executive Director of DC Ranch Community Council in Scottsdale.
The Board appointed a search committee consisting of three Board members (one representing each HOA) to select an internal interim CEO. The committee recommended ACC Community Operations Officer Neal Shearer to the Board for consideration, which the Board approved. He will assume Kohl’s responsibilities on February 16 for an undetermined duration while the Board evaluates next steps. Shearer has served as COO since February 2010.
Willis read a statement from Kohl at the meeting, which she was unable to attend. It said, “I’m not just leaving a community, a physical place, but much more – special people, rich traditions, history and shared experiences...I am truly lucky to have been part of Anthem’s journey, through its growing pains into the lively, amenity-rich, financially stable community that it is today.”
