New FNRC Associate Directors for Client Services
Larry Withers has accepted a promotion to the position of Associate Director of Client Services for our Southern counties effective May 16, 2016. Director of Client Services Judy Kruse will be his supervisor.
Larry has worked with Far Northern Regional Center for more than 23 years. He began as a Service Coordinator in our Redding office, where he worked for several years before transferring to Chico. He was later promoted to what was then called Supervising Service Coordinator, and in 2001 became a Case Management Supervisor. None of that begins to describe the depth Larry’s experience, knowledge and commitment to our clients and to the agency.
We are fortunate to have Larry as a member of our Executive team.
