Gagne Joins CHD Leadership as Chief Operating Officer

Nicole Gagne recently joined CHD as its new Chief Operating Officer (COO) in January 2020, bringing forth a wealth of compliance knowledge and a strong history in supervision from both clinical and administrative standpoints.

As COO, Gagne will work in partnership with the CEO to support and guide other leaders across the organization in their efforts to launch initiatives and help their respective departments and programs, and thus the agency, continue to move forward. Additionally, Gagne will oversee all of CHD’s compliance efforts.

Backed by her extensive experience with compliance work, Gagne will be critical in the supervision, creation and strengthening of organization processes and systems.

“What I love about CHD, which was evident right from orientation, was that there is a commitment to a culture and a mission,” Gagne said. “I really believe in working collaboratively, and I think it’s really important that people come together as a team and collaborate with different strengths.”

Most recently, Gagne served as President and CEO of the Central Massachusetts-based Community Healthlink, Inc. She holds a master’s degree in counseling psychology with a concentration in cognitive behavioral therapy with children and families from Assumption College.
