CEO Announces Retirement from Sourcewise

Steve Schmoll, Previous Chief Executive Officer of SourcewiseSteve Schmoll, Chief Executive Officer of Sourcewise, is retiring this June, after an impressive 35 years of leading the organization. During Schmoll’s tenure, the agency brought such programs as Health Insurance Counseling and Care Management to Santa Clara County (SCC) and became the staffing agent to this county’s Public Authority.

A recipient of grants ranging from elder abuse prevention to comprehensive statewide data management, Sourcewise has continuously delivered on its mission to provide adults and their caregivers the tools and services they need to effectively navigate their health and life options. In addition, Sourcewise has received recognition at local and state levels for marketing, service delivery, and innovation.

SCC’s senior population has shifted dramatically in the past 35 years, putting pressure on the limited resources available for senior programs. Working on behalf of seniors, Schmoll built a network of service providers for those in need.

“As an aging champion, Steve has developed important initiatives,” stated Derrell Kelch, Executive Director–California Association for Area Agencies on Aging. He added, “His contributions to the aging network have been invaluable and have ensured support for aging programs that serve the most vulnerable seniors.”

Schmoll says Sourcewise would not be where it is without its strong, collaborative partnerships and the talented individuals who lead the delivery and administration to provide the direct services.

The Sourcewise Board of Directors thanks and congratulates Mr. Schmoll on an impeccable career and a well-deserved retirement.
