Paul Huxley Takes Reins as New Board Chair For MHS
MHS poised to advance animal welfare in Detroit and beyond
January 28, 2016
The Michigan Humane Society (MHS) has elected Paul Huxley as its new board chair, leading the oldest animal welfare organization in the state during a time of unprecedented growth and expansion. Huxley succeeds Daniel A. Wiechec, who served as chairman of the board for two and a half years.
Huxley, chair of the board of Detroit-based global staffing firm Strategic Staffing Solutions, has been chair of MHS’ $15.5 million Detroit Animal Care Campus capital campaign since 2013. Now, as the MHS board chair, Huxley will shepherd both MHS’ mission and its current capital campaign to completion.
“With the new campus opening this spring, we’ll be doing more for community members and their beloved pets while continuing to help homeless and abused animals that so desperately need our services,” said Huxley. “I’m excited to be leading our board during this hopeful time for MHS and for the City of Detroit.”
“MHS had a significant impact on the community last year, transforming thousands of lives of animals in great need and assisting the people who care for them,” said Matthew Pepper, MHS president and CEO. “We are eager to build on that momentum and energy under Paul’s progressive, caring leadership.”
