FLORHAM PARK, N.J. – The vision statement of the Jewish Family Service of MetroWest New Jersey, familiarly known as JFS MetroWest, calls for the organization “to be the premier agency … providing for the social services and mental health needs of the greater community with unparalleled professionalism, humanity and respect.”

Realizing this vision clearly takes a CEO with a unique combination of both organizational and financial abilities as well as professional social service skills. That’s why, when it came time to hire a new chief, JFS MetroWest called upon Sageview Executive Search, a division of Sageview Consulting, based on its long record of successful placement of executives in similar roles and organizations, and especially those with a Jewish perspective.
In the opinion of JFS, Sageview successfully found the ideal candidate in Diane K. Squadron, who comes with nine years of experience leading the child services division of New Jersey’s Youth Consultation Services with an operating budget of three million dollars. Diane’s business and fundraising skills are proven. But she is also a licensed clinical psychologist with more than 15 years in private and group practice, working with individuals of all ages, a testimony to her counseling skills and empathy.

Diane is a long-time area resident and member of Temple Sharey Tefilo-Israel in South Orange. Her knowledge of Jewish family attitudes and traditions will be a key asset in serving the over 6,000 members of the Jewish and general communities in Essex, Morris, Sussex, North Union and lower Hudson Counties.

The agency’s president expressed delight when discussing their new CEO, who is scheduled to take office on February 1. “We are excited to have Diane join JFS MetroWest,” said Marion Medow. “She brings the right mix of experience and enthusiasm to our agency and will help advance our commitment to the community.”
