Jack Ewing, who has served as Nexus' Vice President of Business Development and Marketing for the past nine years, retired March 30, 2018. During his tenure with the organization, Ewing developed and implemented plans to accomplish controlled growth, including the addition of facilities and programs that helped to complete and diversify programming ensured the continued viability of the organization.  

Highlights of Ewing's work at Nexus, include the startup, merger, and assimilation of several new programs and sites:

Michelle Murray, Chief Clinical Officer and Interim CEO, said, "Jack has been integral to Nexus' growth over the past 9 years. His expertise in business development and marketing has allowed Nexus to open new programs and facilities. Ewing showed his commitment to Nexus' cornerstone values and inspired others with his enthusiasm for helping youth change the arc of their lives."
