The Board of Directors of Parkinson Wellness Recovery (PWR!) is pleased to announce the appointment of Kimberly Peute as Chief Executive Officer. During her 6-year tenure at PWR!, Kim has held key positions of responsibility and authority including Chief Strategy Officer and Chief Operating Officer. She brings to the role a wealth of knowledge about PWR! programs, extensive experience in business operations and management, and a proven track record of execution.
Her significant contributions in the last two years include overseeing the relocation of PWR! to its new facility on Oracle Road and the expansion of therapy and exercise programs to include virtual options. Furthermore, Kim has the strategic, leadership, and technical skills needed to build on PWR!’s previous successes and increase its contribution to the greater Parkinson community.
Kim received her B.A. in Political Science/Spanish from the University of Northern Iowa, her Master’s in Business Administration from Webster University, and her Juris Doctorate from the University of Arizona James E. Rogers College of Law.
In response to the new appointment, Peute said, “I am honored and excited to lead PWR! into its next chapter. The work we do matters – to people with Parkinson’s and their care partners, to the therapy and fitness professionals who serve them, and to the communities who support them around the globe.”
Speaking on behalf of the Board of Directors, PWR! chair Martha Brumfield said, "I am delighted to see Kim promoted to CEO. In addition to the skills and experience she brings to the role, her enthusiasm and passion for PWR!'s mission and clients position her to excel at the helm of the organization. The Board looks forward to working with her as we continue to expand the availability of our programs and services for persons with Parkinson’s".
We wish to acknowledge the contributions of our former CEO, Adrian Hutber, who resigned after stewarding PWR! through an important time of transformation. We wish him well in his future endeavors.
PWR! now provides both on-site and virtual research-based, Parkinson-specific exercise and physical therapy from its newly expanded Tucson headquarters. It also delivers domestic and international training and certification for exercise and therapy professionals.
