 The NewBridge Madison Board of Directors announced Tuesday that it has selected Jim Krueger to serve as the organization’s next Executive Director. NewBridge provides case management, nutrition, home chore, volunteer guardianship, representative payee and senior activities programming to 10,500 older adults in Madison and Monona.

“We are excited for Jim to bring his leadership to NewBridge as we continue to implement our vision of becoming the community’s first call for healthy aging services,” said Board President Barbara Zabawa. “Throughout the competitive search process, Jim’s passion, fiscal responsibility and the personal connections he’s formed with NewBridge members set him apart.”

Krueger has served as Fund Development Director of NewBridge since the organization’s inception in January 2019. He previously worked for 11 years at the North/Eastside Senior Coalition with six of those years spent as executive director.  Krueger played a critical role in the successful merger of the four Madison Senior Coalitions which led to the creation of NewBridge.

“I am excited to work with our exceptional management team, staff and volunteers to help NewBridge meet the challenges older adults will face over of the next decade,” said Krueger. “I look forward to continuing the amazing work done by NewBridge in our community.”

Krueger lives in Sun Prairie with his wife Lisa. He will assume Executive Director duties on November 4, and succeeds Marcia Hendrickson who is retiring.
