On July 1st, ICL welcomed its second President and CEO to take over the reins from retired founder Dr. Peter C. Campanelli.  Mr. Woodlock is an experienced leader with a number of hard-won accomplishments.  He brings to ICL his exceptional government and private sector management experience. Most recently, he served as CEO of Four Winds Hospital, a private psychiatric system in upstate New York, where he replaced the facility’s founder. He also led a major collaborative primary care initiative, an area where ICL is also a NYS leader.

At a time when ICL and other not-for-profit community organizations confront unprecedented changes in the way services will be organized and funded, Mr. Woodlock also brings to the organization his decades-long experience working in New York State government, including his four years as a Deputy Commissioner of the NYS Office of Mental Health where he was responsible for the children and families system of care. During his tenure, he was successful in securing the largest annual appropriation for children’s mental health services in the state’s history.

Mr. Woodlock received both his Bachelor of Arts in Humanities and a Master’s of Science in Special Education from Syracuse University. He was an Associate in Clinical Psychiatry at Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons, as well as a Member of the American College of Healthcare Executives.

He recently commented, “I am honored to hold this title in a time of great change in the human services field. I look forward to working diligently with the Board and staff to ensure its continued growth and success.”

ICL is truly excited about its President and CEO. Welcome, Mr. Woodlock!
