Scott Warzecha, founder and CEO of Netgain Technology, a healthcare cloud service provider headquartered in St. Cloud, has been selected as president of Catholic Community Schools (CCS). He begins his position April 1.
“I look forward to building on the already-strong foundation of academic excellence in our Catholic schools, forming students who love God and neighbor, and preparing them to be citizens who serve others and make the world a better place for everyone,” Warzecha said in a March 26 news release. “I also want to ensure that Catholic education remains an affordable option for every family who desires it.”
Rizzo Executive Search assisted the CCS board of directors in a regional search to find the best candidate for the president position, said Father Ron Weyrens, board chair.
“I particularly appreciate Scott’s passion for our Catholic schools and his deeply rooted faith,” Father Weyrens said. “His skills of strategic thinking and interpersonal relationships will serve CCS well. I am excited to see how, with Scott’s leadership, CCS will continue to grow, especially by including more of our Catholic families.”
Warzecha replaces Lynn Grewing, interim head of CCS, who resigned in January.
Warzecha was born in St. Cloud, attended St Francis Xavier School in Sartell and graduated from Cathedral High School in St. Cloud in 1979. In 2014, he was named Central Minnesota Entrepreneur of the Year and Minnesota State Small Business Owner of the Year. He lives in St. Augusta with his wife of 33 years, Gloria. They are members of St. Mary’s Cathedral in St. Cloud and have two adult children who live in the Twin Cities.
