Superintendent Nancy Banks announces intent to retire in June

Banks to retire after 5 years as Superintendent; Board begins search for replacement

MCBDDS Superintendent Nancy Banks has announced plans to retire effective June 15.

Banks led the agency through a period that included unprecedented private provider network-building efforts and the mandated privatization of its adult day, employment and transportation services programs.  The phase-out of these services, which began in 2015, were completed well ahead of the federal government’s 2020 and 2024 deadlines. 

Other accomplishments included building the agency’s person-centered planning and community integration capabilities, and securing three-year Accreditation awards from both the Ohio Department of Developmental Disabilities and the Committee on Accreditation of Rehabilitative Facilities (CARF).

“Given all that we’ve accomplished, it seems like the right time for a new person to step in and lead the agency,” Banks said.  “I’m grateful for the commitment of our staff and the support of the individuals and families served by MCBDDS during my tenure.”

The Board of MCBDDS has begun working with the Ohio Association of County Boards’ Board and Leadership Consultant to conduct a search for Banks’s replacement, and will consider qualified internal or external candidates.

“Nancy provided outstanding leadership during a critical time for this agency, and I am sure I speak for Board members past and present when I express my appreciation for her work,” said MCBDDS Board President Madeline Iseli.  “We wish her all the best as she pursues her next adventures.”
