The Board of Directors of the Vermont Aging Network Consortium (VANC), an affiliation of all five Area Agencies on Aging in Vermont, announced the appointment of Cheryl Gilbert as their new Chief Operating/Chief Financial Officer (COO/CFO).

As the new senior leader of this not-for-profit entity, reporting to the VANC Board of Directors, Ms. Gilbert will be responsible for the day-to-day operations of VANC.

A focus on establishing future contracts with payers and healthcare systems is expected to further enhance the long-term financial sustainability for aging services as they evolve.

Our recent network affiliation as AAAs through the VANC, will ensure we are prudent financial stewards for our future, which is the central focus of all our strategic plans, and the appointment of Cheryl Gilbert as the new leader of our network consortium is a wonderful step forward as we set the stage for future success” says Susan Gordon, Vermont Aging Network Consortium’s Board President.

“Ms. Gilbert brings a blend of over 30 years of financial and operational leadership to her new role. She has demonstrated progressive growth and knowledge in corporate, private, and non-profit accounting, and has a passion for the care and service to older adults. As an experienced leader successful in strategic planning, building alliances and partnerships, organizational change management, talent development and team building, she will bring a depth and breadth of experience to this new role that will support VANC achieve its goals,” says Gordon. “We are fortunate to welcome her on board.”

Ms. Gilbert started in her role as COO/CFO of VANC on May 20, 2024.
