The Heuga Center for Multiple Sclerosis Board of Directors has promoted Kim Sharkey to chief executive officer. Sharkey had previously been interim chief executive officer and chief operating officer of the Edwards, Colorado nonprofit group.

“The board of directors is confident in Kim’s leadership,” Huega Center board president Richard Neustedter said. “We value her passion for our mission and commitment to operational excellence. These factors were instrumental in our decision and we feel exemplify the qualities which attract donors and ensure we are able to provide needed programs and services for years to come.”

In Sharkey’s five years at The Heuga Center she has helped create “best practices” for the center’s multiple sclerosis programs and services, as well as organizational transparency. Her leadership resulted in The Heuga Center earning a four-star rating ” the highest available ” for fiscal responsibility for the second consecutive year from nonprofit evaluator Charity Navigator. This rating puts The Heuga Center in the top 18 percent of more than 5,000 charities rated by Charity Navigator. More than 80 percent of funds are dedicated to programs and services.

“I’m committed to maintaining our highest rating for fiscal responsibility and positively impacting more people with MS,” said Sharkey. “For 25 years, we’ve empowered people and families living with MS to transform and improve their quality of life through our programs and other educational services. We’re planning exciting new programs and services, continuing to grow with and for people and families living with MS around the country.”
