October 25, 2012
Lansdowne, VA - Care Net today announced the appointment of Roland C. Warren to the position of President and CEO of its national organization dedicated to building a culture where every woman chooses life for herself and her unborn child. Warren joins Care Net after serving for more than a decade as the President of National Fatherhood Initiative. He succeeds Melinda Delahoyde, who after five years of outstanding leadership as well as having worked with Care Net since its inception, decided to step down.
“Roland Warren brings to Care Net a wealth of experience in the nonprofit and business world,” said Jeffrey Wright, Care Net’s Board Chair. “His energy, vision and experience will position Care Net to be a leader in building relationships to serve women and save lives.”
Through Warren’s leadership, NFI became the nation’s #1 provider of fatherhood resources to communities, schools, prisons, hospitals, businesses, the military, and communities of faith. His media appearances have included The Oprah Winfrey Show, The Today Show, CNN, C-SPAN, Dateline NBC, Fox News Channel and Black Entertainment Television.
Prior to his tenure at NFI, Roland spent more than two decades in the business sector, having worked for Goldman, Sachs and Co, PepsiCo, and IBM.
“Care Net has a long and rich history and a solid record of important accomplishments,” said Warren. “Moreover, every day Care Net is saving lives and bringing hope and healing to countless communities across the nation. I’m honored to serve as President and CEO, and look forward to joining such a passionate and committed team.”
