The Amputee Coalition of America (ACA) has announced the appointment of Jamey French to the position of development director.
“Jamey….has a strong background in development and has a proven track record in relationship building,” Kendra Calhoun, president and CEO of the ACA said in a recent ACA press release. “But it was his passion for the ACA’s mission that convinced me that Jamey is the right person for this important role.”
French was the development and marketing director for State of the Heart Hospice, Greenville, Ohio, where he significantly grew the daily patient census, increased special-event revenue, and successfully grew the development program. As the owner and lead trainer of the Dreamality Group, Greenville, he assisted organizations in strategic planning, development, and training.
French is well-acquainted with the ACA. His wife, Molly, is a bilateral amputee and the founder of Amputees in Motion, and they are both ACA-certified peer visitors. Further, over the past year, French has served on the ACA’s Brand Work Group Committee. His expertise in branding and public relations will continue to benefit this effort, but now from an internal staff position, according to Calhoun.
“I am excited and honored to have the opportunity to work alongside such a dedicated team, whose sole mission is to empower and make a difference in the lives of those affected by limb loss and limb difference,” French said.
French holds a bachelor’s degree in business administration and organizational leadership from Urbana University, Ohio.
