GREENFIELD — Love INC of Greater Hancock County has tapped Jim Peters, a local longtime community service volunteer and businessman, as its new executive director.
The organization made public Peters’ selection this week after Brenda Rodgers, who led Love INC from its inception in 2004, announced her intention to step down as executive director this spring.
Peters and his wife, Jan, have lived in Hancock County since 1991, and he has served in a variety of service and volunteer positions.
He currently serves as the disaster recovery chairman for Salvation Army Hancock County and volunteer chairman of Hancock Communities Organized Active in Disaster, a community-based coalition that responds to local crises.
Peters also served on the Salvation Army’s advisory board for Hancock County as well as several other civic organizations.
It was that connection to the community that set him apart.
“Jim has experience on his side and very good connections in the community,” said Love INC board member Phil Miller.
