Red Cross of West Michigan Announces New CEO Will Begin in August

It has been a privilege to serve the wonderful communities that make up West Michigan through the Red Cross.

The American Red Cross of West Michigan has announced that its Regional Chief Executive Officer, Cheryl Bremer, will retire at the end of June after spending six years with the Red Cross.

“It has been a privilege to serve the wonderful communities that make up West Michigan through the Red Cross,” said Bremer. “We have seen tremendous community support and great partnerships form in the past several years and I believe these relationships will continue to grow in the years to come.”

After an extensive search, a successor has been selected to replace Bremer. The new Regional CEO will be Sam Tidwell, who currently holds the same title for the South Florida Region, which is based in Miami. Tidwell was raised in Michigan and has since spent several years with the American Red Cross in Michigan, Nebraska, Washington D.C., and Florida. He will officially begin work with the West Michigan region on August 5.
