The Board of Directors of Allied Community Services, Inc., in Enfield has appointed Carol Bohnet as President & Chief Executive Officer. Her promotion was effective November 9. Bohnet has been with Allied for 19 years and most recently served as Chief Operating Officer.

She succeeds Dean Wern, who served as CEO from 1988 until his retirement in 2011, then as interim CEO until Bohnet’s appointment.

“The Board of Directors is delighted that Carol has accepted this unanimous appointment,” states Board Chairman Frank Santy, “and looks forward to working with her as Allied continues to grow and prosper. The future of Allied continues to look very bright and we are all excited as we continue to strengthen our position as a premier provider of services to individuals with special needs,” he adds.

A resident of Tolland, Bohnet joined Allied in 1994 as Director of Rehabilitation Services and was appointed Executive Director of the corporation’s Allied Community Resources (ACR) subsidiary in 1999. She was named COO in November 2012.

Allied has provided services and supports to children and adults with intellectual and other disabilities in north central Connecticut since 1964. Offices are located in Enfield and East Windsor; group homes are in Enfield, East Windsor and South Windsor. The Allied group employs more than 200 staff members and has a combined operating budget of approximately $12 million.

Services provided by the Allied Rehabilitation Centers subsidiary include residential, employment, day enrichment, school transition, transportation and business support. Allied operates several businesses including Allied’s Attic Thrift Store in Enfield, Different by Design Jewelry and Allied Transportation Services, employing program participants while providing goods and services to the community.

Through its Allied Community Resources subsidiary, the corporation supports several state Medicaid Waiver programs as a financial management services agency.
