Earlier this month Mann announced he would be departing as CEO of the district after 16 years to lead a three-year mission with the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.
Mann recently revealed to Kaweah Delta staff that he will preside over the Mexico City South East Mission for the LDS church. He will be joined in the mission by his wife Lesa.
“It has been a tremendous privilege to serve as Kaweah Delta’s CEO and to have been involved with each of you in developing a healthcare system that is truly remarkable relative to the breadth and caliber of services which we offer,” Mann said in a statement in Mexico City. “Thank you for your support and hard work in making our many plans over the years become a reality!”
Kaweah Delta’s board of directors met on Dec. 19 and decided to conduct both an internal and external search for Kaweah Delta’s new CEO.
“Relative to the future I have every confidence that Kaweah Delta’s Board of Directors will make an outstanding decision relative to selection of our future CEO,” Mann added. “Kaweah Delta certainly has a very bright future ahead — and you have a critical role to play in that future!”
