Lehigh Valley Children’s Centers of Allentown has appointed Charles Dinofrio as its new president and CEO. He will be the third person to lead the organizations since it was founded in 1970.
Dinofrio joined Lehigh Valley Children’s Centers, or LVCC, in 2013 and held several administrative roles before his promotion to vice president of early education and child care in 2016.
“I’m very passionate about the deep roots that LVCC has in the Lehigh Valley. We have a bright future ahead of us and I truly believe our organization is well equipped for the journey,” said Dinofrio. “We will continue to offer innovative programs that respond to the needs of each child and family.”
The board of directors of the organization said Dinofrio played a key role in establishing 12 new locations for LVCC and expanding its services.
He succeeds Susan Williams, who served in the post for 14 years before retiring in 2017. Karen Kemmerer, LVCC’s CFO, had been serving as interim president and CEO.
LVCC provides early education and child care services for nearly 1,400 children throughout the Lehigh Valley.
The organization operates 30 locations in Lehigh, Carbon, and Northampton counties and has approximately 230 employees.
