“We are extremely pleased with the addition of Jack to our staff,” he added. “Not only will his business experiences and board leadership roles with local nonprofits be instrumental in our efforts to expand our organization, his history with and passion for SVDP will facilitate our efforts to carry out our mission.”

Bedell has served in executive positions for 16 years at STERIS Corporation, most recently as vice president, global compliance. His professional experience also includes finance, strategic planning, and merger and acquisition roles during a 14-year span at TRW, Inc. in Cleveland.
