Robert Underhill, Chair of the Board of Directors of TB Vets Charitable Foundation, is pleased to announce the promotion of Kandys Merola to Chief Executive Officer effective July 2020.
Ms. Merola joined TB Vets as Executive Director in 2013 where she played a pivotal role to re-organize and streamline TB Vets’ Key Tag Program. The Foundation has been in a positive financial position to support sustainable operations since.
