Our Leadership

Dan Dzikowicz

Interim Executive Director

Dan Dzikowicz comes to CASA with 20+ years of non-profit and for-profit leadership experience. Early in his career Dan was Executive Director of Hope for the Children of Haiti (South Natick, MA) which shares an important missional thread with CASA Kane County – believing also that every child deserves a safe and permanent home.

Currently, Dan is owner and president of Dan Dzikowicz Consulting which, among other organizational health services, provides additional leadership and executive bandwidth for organizations in transition. Dan’s role as interim leader is three-fold: 1) Ensuring continuation of the excellent and needed programing services at the heart of CASA’s mission; 2) Providing time and space for the Board of Directors to execute a comprehensive search for the next Executive Director; and 3) Setting the next Executive Director up for success.

Dan and his family currently reside in Saint Charles, IL.
