The fact that Morning Light's Abbie Hunt Bryce Home won a national competition for Serious Illness Management Innovation from Boston University in 2018 is just the latest example of Tom Fodor's proven excellence in guiding non profit operations to success. After obtaining his Masters of Science in Business degree from Husson University in 1998, his first CEO appointment came at the Dayton Area Chapter of the American Red Cross in 2004. Before his first year was completed the Chapter was named as Dayton's Non Profit Organization Of The Year by the Dayton Business Journal. During his tenure the Chapter was among a few dozen in the country to achieve a Highly Performing Designation for two consecutive years, as measured by the Red Cross Balanced Scorecard system. The Chapter was also nominated for two Eclipse Awards by the Better Business Bureau. At Morning Light since late 2012 he has spearheaded efforts to increase the community relevancy of free residential hospice care. During his tenure Home use has increased from an average of 20%-50% to more than 80% of hospice rooms being occupied, which is becoming a benchmark for operations of that type. Tom is also active in the community serving on the Rotary Club of Indianapolis Board of Directors and chairing its Education Committee. He is President of the Keystone Business and Community Association, an active member of the Catholic Business Exchange and an Innovation Masterminds group member. Off the job Tom enjoys cycling, golf, following politics and Cleveland sports teams, having been raised in Ohio. He is married to his college sweetheart Karen. They both enjoy their two grandsons, Ben and William.
