Nancy Toscano has become president and CEO of United Methodist Family Services (UMFS), a 121-year-old nonprofit statewide provider of social services programs for high-risk children and parents.
Promoted from chief operating officer, Toscano succeeds Greg Peters, who is retiring after more than 20 years leading the Richmond-based nonprofit.
Toscano, who was named to the role in October, will be the nonprofit’s first female president and CEO. A New York native, she spent part of her career overseas and opened a school for youth with autism in Malaysia. She’s held leadership roles at UMFS and its Charterhouse School for nearly 14 years and was named COO in 2018.
