Greenville, N.C. – Vidant Health is pleased to announce that Scott Senatore, vice president of the Vidant Health Foundation, will step into the president’s role effective July 9, 2018.

Janet Mullaney, current president of the Foundation, is retiring July 6.

“My long tenure at Vidant Health has been very rewarding, and my work with the Foundation has been the pinnacle of my career,” said Mullaney.

Senatore joined the Foundation in June 2016 and, with the Foundation team, has participated in raising $43 million toward the $50 million goal for the Vidant Cancer Care Campaign. The Foundation team has continued to raise funds for James and Connie Maynard Children’s Hospital and other system initiatives that support its mission. Additionally, the Foundation team has enhanced marketing and communication efforts and has developed a more targeted approach to community relations.

Prior to joining the Foundation, Senatore had a successful 10-year career at the Greenville-Pitt County Chamber of Commerce. He stepped into the president’s role at the Chamber for the last three years of his tenure. While at the Chamber, Senatore was a part of a team that increased revenue, grew membership, expanded economic development efforts, grew advocacy efforts and established new partnerships.

Senatore has an undergraduate degree in public relations from the School of Media and Journalism at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and Master of Business Administration from East Carolina University (ECU). He is currently working on a doctorate at ECU in educational leadership. In addition, he holds a certificate in Nonprofit Organizational Management from the United States Chamber of Commerce.

Senatore and his wife, Amanda, have lived in Greenville for 14 years. Amanda, a native of Greenville, is a physician’s assistant at the Vidant Medical Center Minor Emergency Department. They have two boys, ages 6 and 3.

“I’m honored to have the opportunity to lead the Vidant Health Foundation. I’m inspired by and grateful for our donors, volunteers and Foundation team as they continue to demonstrate their generosity and dedication in support of our mission to improve the health and well-being of eastern North Carolina,” said Senatore. “I appreciate the confidence our Board, our team and Vidant Health has in me to guide the Foundation through a very transformative time in health care.”

As president of the Vidant Health Foundation, Senatore will be responsible for leadership and oversight of the organization, which includes the Foundation’s overall strategies, management, planning and operations.

“We are so appreciative of Janet’s leadership during the last two years. She has been instrumental in taking the Vidant Health Foundation to the next level,” said Myra Bowen, chair, Vidant Health Foundation Board of Trustees. “We are thrilled that Scott is able to step into this role and continue to provide strategic leadership and direction for the Foundation team. He has proven, during the last two years, that he has the skills and experience necessary to lead and enhance our philanthropic efforts in the region.”
