FHR (Fellowship Health Resources, Inc.) is pleased to announce the addition of three members to its Board of Directors - Charles S. McLister, Jeff Giovino, and Timothy O’Rourke.

“I am excited to welcome Chuck, Jeff, and Timothy as new Board members,” said Debra M. Paul, FHR Chief Executive Officer. “Their diverse talents, expertise, and commitment to FHR’s mission will be extremely valuable as we further our strategic plan.”

This appointment strengthens the partnership between FHR and Elwyn, a nonprofit human services organization supporting individuals with behavioral health needs and intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD), who entered into an affiliation agreement effective December 2018.

Charles “Chuck” McLister, MA, MBA, currently serves as the President and CEO of Elwyn. In this role, Chuck is responsible for establishing the organization’s strategic direction, working with the firm’s trustees to provide resources, clarity of purpose, and responsive oversight of the organization’s overall performance. Prior to joining Elwyn, Chuck held a variety of governance and leadership positions, providing oversight and guidance for companies that deliver a broad range of behavioral health and human services. From 2010 to 2017, Chuck was an active volunteer and philanthropist, serving on the board of Trustees for Bancroft Neurohealth, and as the chairman of Hopeworks. He has a strong history of active association membership in organizations such as GPSEG, various Chambers of Commerce, the Healthcare Leadership Network of the Delaware Valley, and the Association for Psychological Science. For many years, Chuck held professional certifications in addiction treatment and supervision from the Pennsylvania Chemical Abuse Certification Board (later known as the PA Certification Board, or “PCB”). He holds an MA degree in Applied Psychological Research from Penn State University and an MBA, with honors, from Villanova University.

Jeff Giovino, MS, is Elwyn’s Chief Operating Officer.  In this capacity, Jeff works closely with the CEO to develop, plan and implement the strategic direction of the organization. Jeff oversees the company’s day-to-day nationwide operations, creates and communicates operational strategies with executive leadership, and builds employee alignment with company goals and objectives.  Jeff is also responsible for oversight of support services including human resources, quality improvement, real estate, facility management and healthcare services. Jeff has a bachelor’s degree from the University of Maryland and a master’s degree from Shippensburg University.

Timothy O’Rourke, CPA, currently serves as an adjunct professor for Temple University, as well as the Chairman of the Board of Elwyn. Previously, he held a number of senior executive roles over a span of 31 years at Temple University including Vice President for Computer Services & CIO, Associate Vice President & Controller, Associate Vice President for Enrollment Management, and Special Assistant to the Provost.  Earlier in his career, Timothy acted as Audit Manager at KPMG Peat Marwick.  He holds both a bachelor’s degree and MBA from Temple University.
