George H. Fleischner

CEO & President

With Nonotuck since: 1987

George has led the agency as its president and CEO since the fall of 1987. He brought to Nonotuck a firm and deep-rooted set of values that centered on his profound belief in family, community, life sharing and authentic relationships. Early in his tenure, and based on these values, George guided the agency’s path from congregate care [by closing 15 group homes and moving all 55 people it served] into the personalized service of shared living. His leadership has taken Nonotuck from a small western Massachusetts based organization to a large state-wide agency with 12 offices from Pittsfield to Hyannis while serving over 300 people in shared living and over 800 people in adult family care. George is nationally recognized as an innovator of value-based and personalized services to people with intellectually and/or physically disabled people. George has two children and lives in the small town of Williamsburg, Massachusetts.
