Chicago, IL - Test Positive Aware Network (TPAN) announced the appointment of its new Director of Client Services, Bill Farrand.

Farrand has a background of management experience as vice president and manager of online banking customer technical support at LaSalle Bank, and a customer service manager at Corecomm. He began his TPAN career as the coordinator for the Illinois HIV Services Directory and later became the HIV prevention coordinator for the agency.

"Bill has been a great asset to TPAN, and brings a great deal of HIV management and leadership to the position," said TPAN Executive Director, Rick Bejlovec. "We are very happy to promote someone from within the agency, who brings such a wealth of knowledge and experience."

As the director of client services, Farrand will oversee the agency's long time mission of providing peer-led services, education and advocacy throughout the Chicagoland community. In addition, he will supervise the coordinators of the prevention and Positive Outcomes for Wellness, Education and Recover (POWER) programs.

"TPAN has always provided a network of great programs for more than 20 years, and I'm very happy to be part of its history, as well as its growing future," said Farrand. "My community involvement throughout the years has taught me that HIV remains a very real pandemic that affects all of us. I'm proud to be part of the work TPAN does, especially knowing that we make a considerable difference everyday in the lives of people who are both HIV negative and positive."

Farrand is currently a student at Northeastern Illinois University, and will receive his Master of Arts degree in Community Counseling in August 2009.
