New Leaders

Fall 2023

Michael J. Hood, our new Chief Investment Officer, had the opportunity to introduce himself to administrators who gathered in New York for the September Episcopal Business Administration Conference.


Michael Hood talks about his deep experience with complex, diversified investment portfolios and his family ties to The Episcopal Church.


In July, we welcomed the Rev. Canon Arlette D. Benoit Joseph, Senior Vice President and Church Relations Officer. During her six years as canon for transitions in the Diocese of Pennsylvania, she supported congregations with clergy recruitment, deployment, and the ordination process. She now works closely with the Rev. Clayton Crawley, Executive Vice President, Chief Church Relations Officer, to establish and nurture connections between CPG and The Episcopal Church.

“I’ve already been blessed to participate in the We Are All Related gathering for Indigenous clergy, the Union for Black Episcopalians annual conference, the It’s All About Love festival, and a few bishop consecrations,” Arlette said. “I’m excited to be part of the CPG family and I look forward to continuing to strengthen relationships between CPG and clients across the Church.”
