Children’s Bureau names child-welfare exec as new leader

The Children’s Bureau Inc. on Monday named a new president and CEO to replace Ron Carpenter, who left the Indianapolis not-for-profit in August after 16 years as president.

Tina Cloer, who spent the past 17 years at Adult and Child Mental Health, will succeed Carpenter, who left to become president of Indiana State University Foundation. She begins the new job Jan. 2.

Cloer served in numerous positions at Adult and Child Mental Health, most recently as director of child and adolescent services.

"Tina’s multi-faceted experience within Indiana’s child welfare system is exemplary and her passion is evident,” said Children’s Bureau Board Chairman Mike Newbold in a prepared statement. “Her leadership skills and operations knowledge, coupled with her outstanding fiscal oversight and strategic planning experience, will bring great success to the Children’s Bureau.”

The Children’s Bureau, founded in 1851, is a state-licensed, not-for-profit agency that provides counseling, adoption, foster care, group home care and a crisis shelter.
