New York, NY – Last week, Christine McMahon, President and CEO of the nonprofit The Fedcap Group was named one of the Whole Health Heroes by Empire BlueCross BlueShield and Crain’s New York Business. The award celebrates leaders and innovators making a difference educating and promoting financial, physical and emotional well-being in the New York City region. The Fedcap Group delivers a wide-array of transformative, evidence-based solutions that eliminate barriers to economic well-being, particularly for underserved and underrepresented communities.
As President and CEO, Ms. McMahon has led the growth of the organization from a $60-million, New York-centric agency to a nearly $400-million international enterprise with 22 subsidiary organizations and 3,400 employees across the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom that serves over 250,000 people each year.
Ms. McMahon was recognized for several achievements, including implementing Metrics that Matter which tracks key determinants of health as well as program efficacy. Ms. McMahon has led several critical acquisitions that enable The Fedcap Group to not only expand services in communities it serves, but also to increase its reach in assisting more people in need. The acquisitions include Single Stop, a program that connects eligible individuals to hundreds of millions of dollars in federal, state, and local benefits through an innovative technology and case management platform; ReServe, which matches retired workers, age 50 and up, with the needs of government and social service agencies to fill critical job gaps; and Apex Technical School and Civic Hall, both New York City-based educational institutions providing training in skilled trades and digital technology.
“We’re thrilled that our very own Christine McMahon was honored as a Whole Health Hero by Empire BlueCross BlueShield and Crain’s New York Business,” said Mark O’Donoghue, Chairman of The Fedcap Group’s Board of Directors. “This recognition reinforces what the Fedcap Group Board has witnessed from Chris for more than a decade—a forward-thinking leader committed to helping people in need achieve economic well-being.”
