CPC Announcement of Interim President & CEO

Dear CPC staff, supporters and friends:

The Board of Directors for the Chinese-American Planning Council (CPC) is pleased to announce that Janice Won has been selected as Interim President & CEO to lead the organization during our search for a new President & CEO.  Janice will begin her role on April 20, 2015 and will immediately begin working in collaboration with CPC’s outgoing CEO David S. Chen who has announced his plans to retire.

CPC will immediately begin the search for the next CEO with a sense of purpose and security, knowing that Janice Won will provide the continuity of leadership and organizational stability that CPC staff, clients and supporters need while the search goes on.  With Janice on board and CPC’s newly created strategic plan, we are well-positioned to search for the next executive to lead CPC through its next phase of growth as the premier social services agency on the East Coast.

Janice Won is an executive coach and consultant known for building leadership capacity in the nonprofit community, public sector, and corporate workplaces. Most recently, Janice served as the Interim Executive Director of the Museum of Chinese in America, leading the organization and building the leadership team during its executive transition. Understanding cultural nuances, she has strengthened Asian American organizations and developed talent in a multitude of ways. Janice has co-led programs and served as head coach of Leadership Education for Asian Pacifics, Inc.'s, Executive Director Leadership Program and Emerging Leaders Program.  In 2010, she was appointed Interim Executive Director and Transition Consultant of the Asian American Arts Alliance where she launched an innovative interactive website and retained key talent, while supporting the Board's search for a new director. Since 2007, she has been a certified facilitator with the Anti-Defamation League, delivering A WORLD of DIFFERENCE Institute's training programs for educators, middle school and high school peer leaders in NYC public schools.  Janice was formerly a Senior Vice President in Human Resources with JPMorgan Chase where she led merger integrations that achieved greater efficiencies, seamless transitions and a positive workplace culture. She co-founded its Asian employee network and the first-ever women of color network on Wall St. Janice previously served on the board of directors for the New York Chinese Cultural Center, and co-founded the nonprofit, Asian Women Leadership Network. Janice graduated magna cum laude from Boston University with a degree in psychology.  She is a first-generation, bilingual, Chinese-American with strong roots in Brooklyn, Manhattan and Queens.  The Chinese-American Planning Council's job referral service helped Janice find her first job as a new college graduate returning home to NYC's Chinatown. 

With the full support of our Board and the senior staff, Janice is certain to ensure we continue to provide the excellent service that CPC is known for as well as continue to move ahead on our plans for the exciting future of CPC.

Janice will be based in CPC’s central office in Manhattan and looks forward to meeting with partners, program participants, and community members.  Please join me in welcoming Janice to her new position.
