When we turn on the news, and we see a story about a CEO getting caught doing something that they are not supposed to be doing, chances are it is some large scale embezzlement.
Make sense, because that person tends to have the keys to pretty much everything and can do things by their playbook if they want to.
The problem is that there are people out there that are willing to take advantage of the trust a company puts into someone. When it is someone that is in charge of a company designed to help the sick, it is even more vile.
A woman was arrested and charged with first-degree theft and unauthorized use of a credit card and it just so happens she’s a former Make-A-Wish CEO.
40-year-old Jennifer Woodley used to hold the position of CEO of Make-A-Wish Iowa. She now lives in North Carolina but was booked at the Polk County Jail in Des Moines, Iowa on Thursday. She was later released after she was booked.
It is not known yet according to reports if she has obtained an attorney yet.
KWWL reports on the details that they were able to obtain through a memo:
The memo states that Jennifer Woodley is no longer serving as president and CEO of Make-A-Wish Iowa. The Executive Committee of the Make-A-Wish Iowa Board of Directors made the decision to remove Woodley after financial irregularities were discovered during an internal compliance review by the National Make-A-Wish Office, according to the memo.
