Paul T. Crowley
Chief Executive Officer

GLSS is overseen by a team of six senior managers who report directly to Paul T. Crowley, the Agency’s Chief Executive Officer. With more than 25 years of experience in the governance, executive management, and financial oversight of both for- and not-for-profit organizations, Paul T. Crowley has a proven track record of both best practice innovation and effective resource conservation.  In his current role as Chief Executive Officer at GLSS, Mr. Crowley oversees a staff of 700 and a budget of more than $70,000,000.  During his nearly decades long tenure at the agency’s helm, he has led the agency through incredible shifts in policy direction, from a broadened emphasis on person-centered care and planning to the emergence and growth of the Aging and Disability Resource Consortium, all within an environment of rapidly changing policy and continued focus on health care reform.

Currently, Mr. Crowley serves as President of Greater North Shore Link—the Aging and Disability Resource Consortium of the Greater North Shore—a collaboration of regional aging and disability organizations.  For more than 10 years, he has assumed a critical leadership position in the development of this regional collaboration, which has resulted in new program capacities across the North Shore with strong potential for both significant impact and cost-savings in the delivery of health and human services.

Prior to serving as the Chief Executive Officer of GLSS, Mr. Crowley served on the Agency's Board of Directors, both as its President and as a member of the Finance Committee.  In those roles, he helped to guide the unprecedented growth of GLSS's Transportation Department into the largest non-profit transportation provider in the state.
