Introducing Kenneth J. Mayer, President/CEO
April 7, 2016
AIDS Care Ocean State (ACOS)  announced the appointment of Kenneth J. Mayer as President and CEO, effective the beginning of April. He succeeds Paul Fitzgerald, who is retiring at the end of March 2016 after 27 years of service.

Mr. Mayer holds an MBA with a concentration in health care and his career spans 40 years in human services as a therapist, trainer and administrator. His professional focus includes basic human needs, substance abuse treatment, and hospice.

 In the early 1980s, during his work with hospice, he assisted people coping with HIV and AIDS. Ken has counseled people living with HIV, their caregivers and populations marginalized by society including people of color, IV drug users and their families.

As Ken believes, “People often require and deserve assistance that sees them as individuals, and services must help enhance human dignity with choice. There is power when people band together and bring issues to light, as they lobby government and health care providers to address and treat issues.”

Please join us in welcoming Kenneth J. Mayer to the ACOS team!
