Neighborhood House Welcomes New Director

Rochester Area Neighborhood House is proud to welcome Mark Kilbourn as its new Executive Director. As of March 16, Kilbourn has taken the reins of Neighborhood House and plans on improving on the organization’s stellar record of assisting those at need in the community.

Kilbourn comes to the nonprofit agency from Lighthouse of Oakland County, where he was responsible for leading all of its crisis-to-sustainability programs. His previous for-profit business experiences included multiple vice-presidencies at Cooper Standard in Novi, Webasto Automotive Roof Systems in Auburn Hills, and the Lear Corporation located in Southfield and Germany. Mark holds a business degree from Central Michigan University.

Kathy Losinski, chair of the all-volunteer Neighborhood House Board of Directors, noted that Kilbourn brings a variety of skills to improve both the organization and the area as a whole.

“Mark brings experience, leadership and multiple achievements in both human services and business organizations. His passion for service, his non-profit experience and extensive business acumen place him in a unique position to provide Neighborhood House with exemplary leadership. He is poised to undertake our mission to assist local families in need, provide them with both material and emotional comfort and guide them toward self-sufficiency.  The board is delighted to welcome him to our Neighborhood House family.”

A welcome reception will be held from 2 to 4 p.m. on Sunday, April 12, 2015 at Abiding Presence Church, 1550 Walton Blvd. Rochester Hills. Community members are invited to come and celebrate this new beginning.
