New position added to Senior Leadership Team
Effective in January, Council on Aging (COA) will have a new member of its Senior Leadership Team, who will fill a newly created role.
Mark Reed will join COA as its first Vice President of Compliance, Legal Affairs & Privacy Officer.

This position will help ensure COA achieves the highest standards when it comes to compliance and quality measures
Reed is an attorney who also possesses a significant amount of administrative experience, including serving as Clerk of the Court for the Court of Claims of Ohio and Court Administrator for Hamilton County Juvenile Court. Reed has also worked as a magistrate in Hamilton County.
“I am very excited about beginning this next chapter in my career with Council on Aging. The prospect of becoming part of a team that is so committed to quality while doing such important work is incredibly attractive to me,” Reed said.
