Gleaners hires new CFO, chief development officer


April 13th, 2016 - Annalise Frank
Gleaners Community Food Bank of Southeastern Michigan has hired Ryan Hoyle as Chief Development Officer and Linda Makris as Chief Financial Officer. They replace Gleaners leadership members who left for other opportunities.

Hoyle, 41, replaces Doug Czajkowski, who took a post as associate dean for development at Western Michigan University in Kalamazoo. Hoyle, a Rutgers University graduate, comes to Gleaners from a previous position as vice president of business development and talent acquisition for New Jersey-based consulting firm GalaxE.Solutions Inc.

Hoyle reports to the nonprofit's president, Gerry Brisson, and works with other leaders on their mission, communication strategy and overall philanthropy plan. Hoyle, a former Crain's 40 under 40 honoree, has also served on Gleaners' board for three years.

Before taking the position of CFO, Makris was chief financial specialist for Plymouth-based Financial One Accounting Inc. She replaces Michelle Sherman, who is now CFO at Detroit-based Southwest Solutions.

Makris is a certified public accountant and graduated from the University of Michigan. She will work with Gleaners leadership to create and oversee implementation of financial strategies.
