Born in Ohio and raised in Exeter, NH, Greg Schneider came to Manchester in 1980 and began his career in social services when he was hired by New Horizons for New Hampshire as the Coordinator for the soup kitchen it had just started. After four years with New Horizons he worked for NH Catholic Charities as the first Director of the NH Food Bank. This was followed by several years as a Product Manager for Amoskeag Bank Shares, and in 1990 he returned to New Horizons as Executive Director. In this position, he was responsible for managing the organization, which at that time operated the state’s largest emergency shelter and a food pantry, along with the soup kitchen. Leaving social services for a time in 1996, Greg established a private massage therapy practice, and came to Southern New Hampshire Services in 2002. Starting as the Multi-Cultural Services Director, Greg is currently the Planning and Grants Management Director. He became a Certified Community Action Professional in 2008.
