Hill House Hires New CEO

The Board of the Hill House Association has named Cheryl Hall-Russell as the new President and CEO of the local human services organization.

Board Chairman Al Heiles said Hall-Russell brings a wealth of experience to her new post, having worked in social services for many years. She currently serves as CEO of the Indiana Youth Services Association in Indianapolis.

Hall-Russell will replace Victor Roque, who resigned in June. Heiles said Roque was brought on to navigate the Hill House through a short time period of special challenges, and his departure was expected.

Heiles said he expects the Hill House to continue to expand its services for youth and families.

According to the IYSA website, Hall-Russell has earned Masters Degrees in Philanthropic Studies and Public Affairs from Indiana University, and has worked in the Indianapolis nonprofit sector for nearly two decades.
