John McCarthy Named Chair of Fauquier Health Foundation

October 26, 2015 — The Fauquier Health Foundation announces John McCarthy, Rappahannock County Administrator, as its new Chair of the Board of Directors. He succeeds Marshall Doeller who led Fauquier Health through its partnership with LifePoint Health and the Foundation in its evolution from a fundraising organization to a charitable foundation.

Joining McCarthy on the executive committee are Vice Chair Robin Gulick, founding member of law firm Gulick, Carson & Thorpe, PC, in Warrenton, and Secretary/Treasurer Ray Knott, a Jeffersonton resident who serves as Union First Market Bank Senior Vice President and Market Executive in Warrenton.

Says McCarthy, “We’re fortunate to have had the strong leadership of Marshall Doeller during our first two years of operation. His work was invaluable to helping us develop our strategic plan to affect health and wellness in our area. I’m looking forward to the Foundation’s continued growth and leading our efforts to increase our grantmaking, as well as our investments in Fauquier, Rappahannock and northern Culpeper Counties. With $1,000,000 currently available in open grants, we’re expecting great things.”

Christy Connolly, Foundation President and CEO, shared, “As John said, we’re so thankful for all of the time Marshall gave to the organization during his term as Chairman. For the future, I know the Foundation is in good hands with John’s effective leadership at the helm.”
