Change of heart.
"I left Carson in September '98. The new CEO [Gregory Andrews] came in and he wanted to be president and have direct reports," said Roche. "We worked together for three or four months, but it became obvious that our jobs were overlapping, so I decided to resign," Roche explains simply.
She has recently resolved to lead the aggressively growing, nonprofit organization Girls Inc. in New York, a national youth organization dedicated, as it describes itself, to "inspiring all girls to be strong, smart, and bold." "I wanted to do something beyond doing good for the bottom line of a company," says Roche.
Now the president and CEO of Girls Inc., a 50-year-old organization with 130 affiliates and t,000 sites across the nation, Roche says she plans to stay where she is for a while. "I feel very comfortable in my decision".
