Charles McLimans is the new CEO of the Holy Wisdom Monastery in Middleton. The Benedictine Women of Madison Board selected McLimans due to his leadership and service in the Board of Directors, his experience leading nonprofits, and his involvement as an Oblate at the monastery. McLimans has served as the CEO of The River Food Pantry in Madison since 2017 and has dedicated his career to hunger relief and anti-poverty organizations in Wisconsin and near Chicago.
“For many years I have been yearning and searching for a way to integrate my faith and professional lives,” said McLimans in a Facebook post. “Now I am overjoyed to commit all I have to this place I call home.”
