Haglund named permanent president, CEO of Heritage Ministries

The Heritage Ministries Board of Directors announced that the board has confirmed Lisa Haglund as the permanent president and CEO for Heritage and its affiliates. Haglund previously served Heritage as the vice president of marketing, sales, and development across all communities in four states.

Haglund began her career with Northwest Bank prior to joining the Heritage organization. She worked her way up the ranks in various roles while creating a team that influenced revenue and expense and risk management, streamlined processes, and created cross functional support across the organization.

Haglund attended Alfred State College, as well as the Pennsylvania Bankers Association Advanced School of Banking at Penn State. She has also been an active member of her community throughout the years, with involvement ranging from Chautauqua Leadership Network, PTA, St. Susan Center, Family Services, and the Bemus Point United Methodist Church. Lisa resides with her husband, Jason, and their four children, Allison, Brennan, Madelynn, and Michael in Bemus Point. They are members of the Bemus Point United Methodist Church.

The Heritage Board of Directors stated, “It is this combination of business acumen, integrity, and Christian values that made Lisa the obvious selection as we take next steps in an exciting future for Heritage.”

“As a not-for-profit, Heritage strives to balance the need for improved financial strategies, the future, and intelligent growth,” Haglund said. “Each employee at Heritage plays an important role every day, but especially as we face the recent events unfolding surrounding COVID-19. I am both honored and blessed to have been chosen by the board to lead our organization as we move forward. We have a strong group of team members who work tirelessly to serve seniors and promote the Heritage mission of Hope, Dignity, and Purposeful Living, and I am committed to supporting and honoring our employees and residents across our communities each day.”
