D.C-area Catholic Charities chief to retire
Ed Orzechowski , president of the Washington-area office of Catholic Charities, will retire after 20 years in 2012, bringing leadership change to one of the largest private social service providers in the region.
Under Orzechowski, Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Washington has expanded to oversee 78 programs in the District and suburban Maryland. It focuses on serving the homeless, immigrants and refugees and the disabled, among others.
Orzechowski has been the president and CEO since late 1990 and will step down next January.
