This week Second Chances Equine Rescue announced the appointment of its new Chief Executive Officer, Jess Lamberth. Lamberth’s position as CEO is effective immediately.
“We are beyond excited to see the changes and growth that will come with bringing Jess in as the new CEO,” Founder and former CEO Andrea Doolittle says. “Jess has a true love for equines and with his experience and knowledge, we are confident that he will be successful with this position at the rescue!”
Lamberth has been a steady volunteer with Second Chances over the last year and has dedicated many hours to the organization and equines. His passion for equines was one reason he pursued applying for and accepting the position.
“Second Chances has made such a positive impact on my life, so it wasn’t a difficult decision to do more for something that means so much to me,” Lamberth says. “I look forward to my new position and seeing where I can take the rescue for the future.”
Lamberth has extensive experience with equines as well as people from a wide variety of backgrounds. After serving 14 years in the United States Army he chose to make Liberty County his permanent home. He has worked the last 8 years as local law enforcement so his compassion and understanding for people has expanded tremendously during that time.
Second Chances Equine Rescue is a locally based non-profit founded to rescue, rehabilitate, and rehome equines from a variety of situations. Since opening in August of 2013, the organization has assisted over 180 equines.
