Today, ACDS celebrates James Sylvester, Chief Operating Officer, for his service of 25 years at Arundel Community Development Services, Inc. James first joined ACDS as Finance Administrator in 1998. Throughout the years, James has established strong financial controls and designed the corporation accounting system to support and grow our mission of serving low and moderate income individuals and communities throughout Anne Arundel County. In addition to supporting a growing list of list of grant and revenue sources, vendors and subrecipients, James has simultaneously managed our operations, as ACDS has grown to respond to emerging issues, including the Great Recession and more recently, the COVID-19 pandemic. His sound financial stewardship has made ACDS a trusted partner to federal, state and local government stakeholders, our more than 100 grant recipients, and thousands of community members benefiting from our services.
Thank you, James, for your leadership and dedication to ACDS, our mission and our people!
