Executive Leadership

James P. Scordo
Executive Director
With Credo Since: 1983

“I have been fortunate to have worked the last 31 years for an organization such as Credo that shares the same values and beliefs that I have as a person: honesty, hope, compassion, trust, respect, responsibility, integrity, and accountability. I have learned that if I give 100% every day and treat people as I would want to be treated – with dignity and respect – we can be part of making small miracles happen, one life at a time.”
