A longtime leader for the Grand Forks Community Violence Intervention Center is leaving her post to join Altru Health System.

CVIC President and CEO Kristi Hall-Jiran announced Thursday she has accepted Altru's offer to become the hospital's executive vice president and chief philanthropy officer.

"I have such mixed emotions leaving CVIC," Hall-Jiran said in a statement. "My work here was never a job, but rather a calling, and it is something that I felt privileged to be a part of every single day."

Hall-Jiran joined CVIC in 1990 as a counseling intern and served in other positions before being named president and CEO in 1995, the release said. Her major accomplishments included increasing staff from six to 74 members and implementing evidence-based programing to intervene in and end violence, according to a news release.

"CVIC now offers direct services to more than 3,300 adults and children and violence prevention education to 11,400 a year, supporting an annual budget of $4.6 million," the release said.

"Kristi will bring incredible talent and passion to this position that will challenge our health system to reach new heights for advancement," said Dr. Eric Lunn, president of Altru.
