The Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender Community Center of Baltimore and Central Maryland (GLCCB) announced on April 25 several leadership changes, including the resignation of GLCCB Executive Director Matt Thorn and the appointments of Stephanie Baker and Daniel Moore to the GLCCB board of directors.
The GLCCB board accepted Thorn’s resignation as executive director, effective April 30. Thorn has served in his role since March 2013.
“It has been a tremendous honor for me to serve as executive director over the past year,” Thorn said. “I have greatly appreciated the opportunity to work alongside a dedicated, passionate group of staff members and volunteers, and I offer my best wishes for the Center’s continued success.”
Thorn cited personal family matters for his departure from the organization.
The GLCCB board, under President Mike McCarthy, has appointed Kelly Neel as the organization’s interim executive director. Neel previously served as the organization’s deputy executive director and program coordinator and will serve as the primary point of contact for the community center’s day-to-day operations, financial management and program administration.
“I am excited to step into the position of interim director and am looking forward to the new challenges and opportunities ahead,” Neel told the Blade.
