Cass Community Social Services (Cass) is proud to announce Kimberly K. Hudolin has been named to the newly created position of Deputy Director; she is Cass’ first Deputy Director in its 14-year history. Hudolin was introduced to Cass in the early 1990’s as a volunteer for its Rotating Shelter program, and later served lunches and made sandwiches at the agency’s Scott Building.
“Kim Hudolin is extremely qualified to manage and direct the operations and programs at Cass,” said Cass Executive Director Faith Fowler. “She has vast experience with supervising staff, reviewing contracts, maintaining records and overseeing financial activity. She is a strategic thinker and, just as important, Kim has a heart for our work.”
As Deputy Director, Hudolin will oversee Cass’ daily operations, allowing Fowler to have more time to focus on community outreach, fund and friend-raising. Hudolin acknowledges the agency’s strong programs and dedicated staff, and will work to support and enhance both.
I always intended to volunteer more with Cass when I eventually retired, and the creation of the Deputy Director position enabled me to join the team on a full-time basis even earlier than I’d hoped,” Hudolin said. “I had a great legal career, but I’m thrilled to be able to create a second career doing such significant work with the Cass team.”
Prior to joining Cass, Hudolin worked for General Motors as an attorney on the executive level. During her 19-year tenure she worked in a variety of positions in the transactional/corporate finance areas. Before GM, Hudolin spent 10 years as Partner/Associate at Honigman Miller Schwartz and Cohn in Detroit.
Hudolin has a long history with nonprofits, and is currently serving as the volunteer Board Chair for both Michigan Community Resources and the Staff Parish Relations Committee of Metropolitan United Methodist Church in Detroit.
Hudolin is also a member of the State Bar of Michigan and graduated cum laude from the University of Michigan Law School, Ann Arbor. While at General Motors she was the recipient of the 2013 TeamGM Transformers Award, the Chairman’s Honors Award in 2002 and 2008 and a 2008 Corporate Secretary Magazine finalist for best corporate secretary or legal counsel in an M&A transaction.
Hudolin has three adult children and lives in Northville, Mich. with her husband Stephen.
