Rebecca Bryant Named New President and CEO of LRCS

(Laconia) Rebecca (Becky) Bryant has been appointed the new President and CEO of Lakes Region Community Services by the LRCS Board of Directors, effective January 1, 2017.

We are all delighted that Becky has accepted this position.  LRCS is currently in a strong financial position, largely due to Becky’s efforts as our Director of Finance,” said LRCS Board President R. Stuart Wallace, who led the selection committee. “We are confident that she is the right leader to guide LRCS through the challenges facing agencies in the human services field today, and she will do so to the benefit of the individuals and families we serve, and communities throughout the Lakes Region,” commented Wallace.”

After a successful career in the business sector, Bryant served as the LRCS Director of Finance for almost 10 years. She was appointed interim CEO in October, following the departure of Christine Santaniello, who is now serving as Director of the New Hampshire Bureau of Developmental Services. A long-time resident of the Lakes Region, Becky and her family reside in Moultonborough.

“I look forward to continuing to serve Lakes Region Community Services and all of our stakeholders, especially the individuals and families we support who are at the core of our mission. When I joined LRCS ten years ago, it was a conscious decision on my part to find a mission driven career and way of life. This agency and community is in fact a way of life for me, said Bryant.”


“We have many challenges and exciting opportunities ahead. As a leader of this organization, I feel fortunate to be surrounded by dedicated families, employees and board members who provide a wealth of crucial historical knowledge forming a roadmap for our journey forward. The LRCS tag line is “Engage. Empower. Inspire.” My goal is ensure these powerful words guide my leadership style and are woven into our actions every day, added Bryant.”

Lakes Region Community Services is a nonprofit, comprehensive family support agency with a primary focus of providing supports to individuals with developmental disabilities and/or acquired brain disorders and their families. A dynamic human services organization, LRCS offers other essential and critical services to individuals in the greater Lakes Region from birth throughout their lifespan. At the core of LRCS’ work are inclusion, acceptance, and building strengths and partnerships – whether at the individual, family or community level.
