'Each brings valuable experiences, expertise to organization,' CEO says

Three Hope Hospice directors have been elected as officers on the board.

They are Patrick Brown of Danville, elected as vice president; William Harvey of Walnut Creek, elected treasurer; and Melanie Ridley, also of Danville, elected secretary.

Results of the election were announced by Craig Eicher, Hope Hospice board president and also a Pleasanton police captain.

"We are fortunate that our board officers reside in the communities we serve," said Bob Boehm, Hope Hospice CEO. "Each brings valuable experiences and expertise to our organization."
