Lifetrack CEO Transition

Lifetrack has been a part of the Twin Cities community for almost seventy years, working to help families connect with resources and opportunities. President and CEO, TrixieAnn Girtz Golberg and the senior leadership team have worked tirelessly in the last year to finalize the 2018-2020 strategic plan along with leading the organization through significant change. Trixie and the Board feel the time is right to build on this foundation and bring in a new leader for the organization to lead the effort to fulfill Lifetrack’s strategic plan. As such, effective January 5, 2018, Golberg will transition into an advisory role supporting the Board and senior leadership team. Trixie and the Board are confident in the future of Lifetrack and its work providing essential services to the community and Minnesota families.    

“Lifetrack truly thanks Trixie for her more than eleven years of service to Lifetrack and her commitment to helping Lifetrack during this transition. She has been an amazing advocate for the clients Lifetrack serves,” said Lori Bonin, Board Chair. “She led the organization to achieve significant accomplishments. Specifically, she guided the organization through the many changes and challenges facing the human services sector.”

“Trixie has been instrumental in earning Lifetrack a seat at the table as the legislature and Governor crafted plans for early education. She has also steered the organization to receive highly competitive state and county funding for employment programs serving those with disabilities, refugees, immigrants, and others not well served by traditional employment programs,” said Daniel Prokott, Board Vice Chair.  “Her leadership has supported Lifetrack’s legacy through the positive impact on the community.”

“The staff and families of Lifetrack are an inspiration every day and the urgency of the mission has never been more clear. Leading the organization to its new role has been an honor and I am very appreciative of the support, generosity and guidance of so many,” Trixie shared.

Curtis Knutson has been named interim CEO while the board begins a search for a permanent President and CEO. Curtis has extensive financial and operations experience in both for-profit and non-profit organizations. Trixie will work closely with Curtis, as well as the Lifetrack board and leadership team to ensure a smooth transition for our staff, clients and key stakeholders.
