Autism New Jersey Welcomes Two New Trustees

It is with great pleasure that Autism New Jersey welcomes Daniel Nole and Neil Hudes as members of our 2016 Board of Trustees.

Dan and his wife, Julie, currently reside in Chatham, New Jersey and are proud parents of twin boys, Rocco and Danny, who are both on the autism spectrum. Dan is currently the Vice President of Finance & Administration at BluePrint Technologies and serves on Autism New Jersey’s Budget and Finance Committee.  Dan notes, “Autism New Jersey has been a source of information, guidance and inspiration for my wife and me and it’s a great pleasure to serve on the Board."

Neil and his wife, Marsha, live in Flemington, New Jersey and are parents to their son, Jake, 25, who is on the autism spectrum.  Neil is currently the Senior Vice President Operations/Chief Operating Officer of Hunterdon Medical Center.  Neil has been involved with Autism New Jersey for many years and was an inaugural member of our Golf Committee, serving since 1999.  Welcome, Neil!

“It is our pleasure to have two such wonderful additions such as Dan and Neil join our Board of Trustees,” said Gino Valiant, Board President.  “We look forward to them sharing their expertise and their contributions to the agency and the greater autism community.”
