The East Valley Jewish Community Center has hired Charles Paltzer as its new controller. He previously served as the director of global affairs at the Cardio-Renal Society of America and as director of finance at the National Kidney Foundation of Arizona.
Charles has a bachelor’s degree in international accounting from Benedictine University (formerly Illinois Benedictine College) and a long history of working and volunteering for nonprofit organizations.
He was drawn to working at the East Valley JCC because of the agency’s great work in community programs and early childhood education. “A passion for mission, community involvement and charitable work are what drive me,” he says.
Charles has lived in Arizona since 2001, relocating from Chicago.
Charlie Reidhead, who served as the EVJCC’s controller for more than 12 years, retired in September.
