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.
