Senior Administration Staff

West Central’s success begins and ends with our employees. Under the direction of the Board of Director’s, the President and Chief Executive Officer is responsible for hiring and assigning staff to conduct the daily operations of the agency. In order to provide the most effective and efficient services in the communities we serve, West Central employs roughly 100 staff within the six unit organizational structure. These six units operate over two dozen individual programs in a ten county service area.
