Hyundai Motor Manufacturing of Alabama & Local Suppliers' Annual FFD
MAFB Selects New Chief Operating Officer
The Montgomery Area Food Bank (MAFB) announced recently; Richard Deem (Left) will be assuming the duties as Chief Executive Officer following a transition period with Parke Hinman, III (Right), who announced his intentions to retire earlier this year.
Only the third director in the food bank’s 30 year history of combating hunger, Deem was selected by a special Selection Committee of the food bank’s Board of Directors, who took more than three months to arrive at their decision after receiving more than 100 applications from throughout the nation.
Deem is not new to food banking. He has been serving on the Montgomery Area Food Bank’s Board of Directors, while also serving as Director, Elmore County Food Pantry, located in Wetumpka. “I’m honored by this selection,” said Deem. “I’m leaving some amazing people at the Elmore County Pantry, but we won’t be far away, and I look upon this challenge as an opportunity to fight hunger in Alabama on a larger scale.”
Hyundai Motor Manufacturing Alabama (HMMA) and their local suppliers presented the proceeds of their Annual Fund and Food Drive to benefit the Montgomery Area Food Bank (MAFB) Wedesday morning, to Executive Director Parke Hinman, (center). Doing the honors are HMMA Director of Production Craig Stapley and Senior Vice President for Human Relations and Administration Richard Neal, (left/right).
Please note; the check pictured reads $26,135. However, final contributions are still being counted this morning, so that total is still growing! To all HMMA and local supplier employees - who help fight hunger year 'round, not just during the annual drive - THANK YOU!
