Geri Marullo became president and CEO of Child and Family Service (CFS) in 1998.
With her vast experience and innovative thinking, she leads the way for nearly 800 employees at 36 sites around Hawaii, Marullo quadrupled the work force and nearly tripled revenues (through grants, government contracts, fundraising, etc.), and still continues to push CFS to new heights with her visionary mindset.
CFS was established in 1899 as Associated Charities.
Since then, it has evolved into the largest private provider of human services in the state. Locally based and locally run, CFS is often confused with Child Protective Services, which is the state agency that removes children from troubled.
She has a Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Hunter College, N.Y., Master of Science in Nursing and a Doctorate of Public Health, both from the University of Hawaii at Manoa.
