Nick Logothets Named RI Red Cross Interim Director -- Chapter Remains Ready to Respond

The New Year will bring new leadership to the American Red Cross of Rhode Island. As of January 1, 2004 Barbara E. McGann will leave her position as CEO of the American Red Cross of Rhode Island and will join the Boston Public School System as Director of Human Resources. The Board of Directors has appointed Nick Logothets, current Red Cross Director of Emergency Services, to serve as interim CEO. Mr. Logothets has many years of Red Cross experience which will help to ensure a seamless transition.

Mr. Logothets, a Rhode Island native, came to the Rhode Island Chapter 14 months ago from Ohio where he was the Chief Executive Officer for the Seneca Chapter and the Sandusky Chapter of the American Red Cross. His association with the Red Cross dates back to 1972 when he was a Disaster Volunteer in Chicago.  Since his return to Rhode Island, he has directed Red Cross Disaster Operations for the Pocasset Lodge Fire, the West Warwick Club fire and the recent Pawtucket Mill Fire. Mr. Logothets coordinates the Homeland Security-Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) training for Rhode Island communities working closely with the Rhode Island Emergency Management Agency. Mr. Logothets resides with his wife, Celeste, in his native Newport.

The American Red Cross of Rhode Island is a humanitarian organization, led by volunteers, that provides relief to victims of disasters and helps people prevent, prepare for, and respond to emergencies. It does this through services that are consistent with its Congressional charter and the fundamental principles of the American Red Cross and the International Red Cross Movement.

In 2003, the Red Cross of Rhode Island provided emergency food, clothing and shelter to over 1,000 individuals displaced by house fires. Typically it costs the Red Cross $1,000 per family of four that it assists. All Red Cross assistance is free, thanks to contributions from individuals and organizations. The Red Cross is not a government agency and relies on private donations to provide emergency assistance to Rhode Islanders in crisis.
