MEND announces Eileen Wirth as president and CEO
MOORESTOWN, NJ — The Board of Trustees of Moorestown Ecumenical Neighborhood Development, Inc. (MEND) announced that Eileen Wirth, a veteran in affordable housing management and finance, is the new president and CEO. Wirth is the first woman to serve in this position in MEND’s 50+ year history. She succeeds Matthew Reilly, who announced his planned retirement earlier this year after serving as MEND’s president and CEO since 2001.
As MEND’s new leader, Wirth, of Plainsboro, will be responsible for continuing the nonprofit organization’s mission of providing safe and affordable rental housing to senior citizens, persons with disabilities and families of low and moderate income. She will maintain MEND’s municipal partnerships in Southern New Jersey and direct a staff of 18 affordable rental housing management and maintenance professionals. “On behalf of the Board of Trustees, we proudly welcome Eileen as MEND’s new President and CEO and truly thank Matthew Reilly for his 20 years of dedicated service to MEND and our affordable housing mission in the South Jersey community,” said MEND Chairperson Terrance Huettl. “We are confident that Eileen will help us build upon our 50+-year legacy of providing high quality, affordable rental housing to individuals, families and senior citizens. Her industry knowledge and property management expertise will be a strong asset as we continue to grow and expand our reach, especially in response to the economic impact of COVID-19 on New Jersey.”
