Danville man to head Contra Costa Humane Society

Danville resident David Stegman has been named the new interim executive director of the Contra Costa Humane Society with offices in Pleasant Hill. Stegman, a longtime animal welfare advocate, has more than 35 years of nonprofit and government agency experience, most recently as executive director of both Tony La Russa's Animal Rescue Foundation (ARF) and the Valley Humane Society.

At ARF he created the organization's first strategic plan that expanded its growth from a local to a national level. At the Valley Humane Society he implemented an agency-wide reorganization providing direction and leadership for half a dozen staff members and more than 300 volunteers.

In his new position at the Humane Society he will be responsible for managing the organization's successful Adopt-a-Friend, spay/neuter and Emergency Medical programs, promotion and fund raising as well as helping develop additional agendas to strengthen the human/animal connection.

Stegman has lived in Danville and San Ramon for 38 years. He and his wife Jeri have six grown children, four grandchildren and two rescued dogs.
