Operation Lifesaver Inc. (OLI) has tapped Rachel Maleh to serve the nonprofit organization as executive director.

Maleh has served as OLI's interim chief operating officer since February 2018. She succeeds Interim President Wende Corcoran, who has helped lead OLI in various positions for two decades. Corcoran returns to her previous role of vice president.

OLI Chair Jo Strang described Maleh as an "accomplished senior executive" who helped lead the OLI team in her previous role.

"Her experience working with our state partners, and financial supporters, is invaluable," Strang said in a press release. "I'm confident that her impressive skill set, and dedication to our mission, will lead to even greater success in this new position."

Maleh's "extensive experience" in nonprofit management and fundraising will be a benefit to OLI, added Vice Chair and Treasurer Mark Schulze.

Maleh runs a communications consulting firm in the Washington, D.C., area. Previously, she served as deputy executive director of the Greater Washington Region of the American Heart Association.
