Mark Jividen has officially accepted the position of VOICE-corps Executive Director. He had been the organization’s Interim Executive Director since November, 2014. The transition became official at VOICEcorps’ May Board of Directors meeting. “Having been away from broadcasting for a time, my passion is re-ignited by VOICEcorps for the career I've enjoyed all my life,” he said. “Immersion into the daily activities is even better, somehow, because I feel as though I'm making a difference.”
Jividen cites a stronger financial footing for the reading service as a main goal, among many. “The past six months have passed so quickly that many of the goals I set for the interim period are not accomplished. And, there are so many areas that need attention almost daily,” he said. “Chief among them at the moment is to return VOICEcorps to financial stability. These difficult economic times and decreased government support require increased emphasis on fundraising and public support. I'll be working closely with staff, volunteers and our board of directors to solve this ever menacing situation.”
And he’s eager for the tasks at hand. “I look forward to the challenges ahead and to getting to know all the wonderful people who financially support and volunteer their time to make VOICEcorps a valuable service to Columbus and the central Ohio community,” he said.
Jividen is a long-time VOICEcorps volunteer, and recently received his 30-year service pin at the annual VOICEcorps Volunteer Recognition Dinner. For several years he led North American Broadcasting, Inc. as Vice President/General Manager. He owns G3 Communications and assists his sons with operating several Little Caesars businesses throughout the area.
Jividen is a graduate of The Ohio State University with a degee in Broadcasting and Business. He lives in Grove City with his wife Robyn, and has three children and six grandchildren.
