Turning Point Welcomes New Management Team Members

December 16, 2015

John J. Clancy, Chief Executive Officer, announced the addition of two new members of the leadership team at Turning Point. Surendra Jakhar will serve as Vice President of Finance and Brian Gamarello will assume the position of Director of Programs.

Surendra Jakhar comes to Turning Point after most recently serving as the Chief Financial Officer and Director of Finance at Seabrook House, an addiction treatment provider in Southern New Jersey. Mr. Jakhar holds several advance degrees, most recently receiving his MBA from Fairleigh Dickinson University. His 15+ years of financial leadership experience in government, healthcare, and addiction treatment will be of great value to Turning Point moving forward.

Brian Gamarello, MA, LCADC, CCS joins Turning Point after most recently serving as the Senior Director of Substance Abuse Counseling at Integrity House, an addiction treatment provider in Northern New Jersey, where he oversaw all clinical programming, medical departments, student intern programs, and operations. Mr. Gamarello’s 20 years of progressive clinical experience will be of great value to Turning Point moving forward and we are sure that his leadership will enable all Turning Point programs to fulfill their mission by meeting or exceeding their goals.

“Please join me in welcoming Surendra and Brian as they join us in our efforts to continue to provide the highest quality services to the increasing number of addicted individuals seeking treatment in New Jersey and throughout the region”, Clancy said.
