Cedar Sinai Park Chief Executive Officer Transition

Lance Steinberg Sandra Simon

CSP Board President Lance Steinberg with Sandra Simon, now Chief Executive Officer.

Cedar Sinai Park’s board of directors has appointed Chief Operating Officer Sandra Simon as Chief Executive Officer, effective September 8, 2015. This appointment follows the retirement of David Fuks, now Chief Executive Officer Emeritus. Fuks will end his Emeritus appointment effective on October 31, 2015.

On behalf of Cedar Sinai Park’s board, President Lance Steinberg said, “Our community sincerely appreciates the leadership of David Fuks and is excited at the opportunity of working with Sandra Simon as our new Chief Executive Officer. We are so pleased that our transition plan will make it possible for Cedar Sinai Park to continue to provide the excellence our community needs.”

Ms. Simon joined Cedar Sinai Park as Chief Operating Officer in July of 2014 and previously served as Chief Operating Officer of the San Francisco Jewish Home.

Ms. Simon said, “I am deeply honored to be appointed CEO for CSP, to serve in a mission driven organization that is committed to serving the community with exemplary and innovative high quality programs and services.  I am grateful for this past year of mentorship from David Fuks, whose guidance and support were instrumental in preparing me for the next step.”

As chief executive officer, Ms. Simon will work with Cedar Sinai Park’s executive team to facilitate an orderly leadership transition while overseeing the organization’s ongoing transformation. Ms. Simon is also a member of the newly formed Board of Directors for the CSP Foundation. CSP has embarked upon the search for a new Chief Operating Officer to replace Ms. Simon in that role.

Mr. Fuks retires after 18 years at CSP. During his tenure, he was responsible for significant growth and expansion of the scope and services of Cedar Sinai Park.  He will now be working as a consultant and pursuing his many evocations.

“The 18 years I’ve spent at Cedar Sinai Park have been a great adventure,” said Mr. Fuks. “It has been a delight to work with a remarkable staff, dedicated community volunteers, and with the people we serve and their families. I am very pleased that Sandra Simon will be my successor. Her skills and talents are ideal as we move to develop the system of care that will best serve our community. I hope all will join me in supporting her as she undertakes this important work.”

Elegant Arches, Soaring Spans: The Bridges of C. B. McCullough

With Robert W. Hadlow, PhD, Oregon Department of TransportationBridge

Robert W. Hadlow is the authority on highway bridge-building in Oregon.  In his illustrated presentation, Hadlow will look at the structures that Conde B. McCullough designed and built across the state between the two world wars, focusing on their engineering and architecture.

For over 25 years, Robert W. Hadlow has researched and written on historic road resources throughout the United States.  He is the senior historian with the Oregon Department of Transportation, where he completes Section 106 and Section 4(f) compliance work.  In 2000, Hadlow prepared a National Historic Landmark nomination for the Columbia River Highway Historic District.  In 2005, he listed eleven of McCullough’s Oregon Coast Highway bridges in the National Register of Historic Places.  At present, he is preparing NHL nominations on five of those bridges.

Hadlow has been on the governor-appointed Oregon State Advisory Committee on Historic Preservation since 2008 and is now its vice-chair.  When he is not pursuing transportation history, you might see him out on the streets and roads around Portland in his 1949 Buick, which he has owned for over 35 years.
