We are excited to announce that Joel Fletcher will be joining the HSHS St. Mary’s Hospital Foundation team as a philanthropy specialist. His main responsibility will be working with donors and continuing to build relationships in our community to benefit St. Mary’s Hospital and the Decatur community at large. 
 
Joel and his wife, Stacey, moved to Decatur in 1987 with their two daughters, Amanda and Lindsey. He spent his first 19 years in in the area serving as general manager with Cromwell Radio Group and what is now Neuhoff Media.
 
In 2006, he joined the Herald & Review as advertising director and was promoted to general manager/advertising director in August of 2016. Fletcher served as past chairman of the board for the Greater Decatur Chamber of Commerce and past president of Baby Talk board of directors. He currently serves on the St. Mary’s Foundation board, but will relinquish that title as he joins our organization as a colleague.
 
“We are very excited to have Joel join our team,” said Julie Moore, executive director of philanthropy, advocacy and community relations at St. Mary’s Hospital. “His care for our community is unmatched and the relationships he has built over the years will be a great asset to our ministry.”
 
“We can’t wait to put Joel’s talents to good use,” said EJ Kuiper, interim president and CEO at St. Mary’s Hospital. “His attitude and personality will make a great addition to our Foundation team.”
