Atco, N.J. — Marge Conner-Levin of Cherry Hill has been named chief operating officer (COO) for strategic business development at Archway Programs, a New Jersey-based organization where individuals with physical, emotional and neurological disabilities are partnered with passionate, committed and talented professionals in a safe environment.
As COO, Conner-Levin will function in three primary areas, including strategic business development to meet company targets for program growth and profitability, fundraising and grant writing to increase financial support from the business and general community, and operation support to coordinate the activities of the organization in maintaining Archway's policies, goals, and objectives.
"Marge was selected from among a highly competitive field of candidates," said Archway Programs CEO Dan Martin, EdD. "She has demonstrated proven grant writing and fundraising success; non-profit organizational management; excellent communication skills; leadership and vision; and a working knowledge of public and private funding systems and contract policies."
Conner-Levin has extensive experience with behavioral healthcare service providers focused on delivering quality mental health services. Prior to joining Archway, she worked with CFG Health Systems, LLC, in Marlton as a writer, consultant and performance improvement leader. Previously, Conner-Levin worked in positions of increasing scope and responsibility including as COO at Drenk Mental Health Center in Hainesport, N.J.
"An optimist by nature, I believe that there are opportunities for creative fundraising and revenue diversification through not only traditional grant writing," said Conner-Levin, "but perhaps through some non-traditional sources such as the use of social media, and strategic, innovative alliances with Archway's best interests at the fore."
After earning a bachelor's degree in psychology from Cook College at Rutgers University, Conner-Levin continued her education at Rutgers, earning a master's in social work (MSW) with an emphasis in administration and policy planning.
