Rotary has tapped non-profit management expert Michele Berg to help lead the day-to-day operations of the humanitarian service organization’s headquarters, which includes 525 associates based in Evanston and 275 located in six international offices, and a shared services center in India.

As deputy general secretary, Ms. Berg will work alongside Rotary General Secretary John Hewko to ensure effective internal operating policies and implement strategies and programs.

“Michele is an outstanding leader who has been instrumental in ensuring that we provide high-quality services to our members – all volunteers committed to making the world a better place through humanitarian service,” said Mr. Hewko. 

“I feel strongly that creating the right conditions for associates, including workplace flexibility, professional growth opportunities, and empowerment is the best way to attract and retain talented people who take pride in their work and deliver outstanding service to Rotary members,” Ms. Berg said.
