HealthNet hires new executive director
JANESVILLE--Janesville’s free, downtown health clinic has a new leader.
Jean Randles, 41, Janesville, officially becomes the new executive director Tuesday, said Mike Dow, a member of the board of directors and hiring committee.
“I think it will be a really good fit and it’s a great organization,’’ she said in reaction to being offered the job earlier this week.
Until Dec. 31, Randles was program and human resources director at KANDU, a local nonprofit organization that provides work opportunities for disabled adults through its production services for companies.
She also is an adjunct instructor at Blackhawk Technical College where she teaches courses on working effectively together, student success and human resources plus works on the adventure ropes course.
“I bring nonprofit experience and have experience working with and developing program services,” Randles said.
“I also have 17 years of human resources experience,’’ she said.
Dow said those skills are what set Randles apart from the more than two-dozen applicants and five finalists.
