Rev. Stan Sloan, the longtime CEO of Chicago House and Social Services Agency, will be leaving his post as of June 30, 2016.
Sloan notified Chicago House board's Executive Committee on Sept. 15, and agency employees the following day. He said that he wants to give the agency time to conduct a thorough search for a new head.
Sloan has been in his post since 2000, and said that he is leaving mainly because he had been contemplating a new career move, as well as seeking more time with his parents, who still live in his native Amarillo, Texas. Sloan is also engaged to a cardiologist who lives in Brazil, and said in his email to Chicago House employees that moving there might be an eventual possibility, though he is still unsure of his next career steps.
"Overall I'm excited for the possibilities and what will come next," Sloan said in the email. "But I am also very sad to be leaving you and an agency that I love."
