As CEO of Richcroft, Kevin Drumheller heads a Hunt Valley-based company that provides an array of residential care and support services for people with intellectual and other developmental disabilities.
The company was launched in 1983 with the opening of eight homes in Howard County serving 24 people. It has since opened homes in Carroll County, Harford County and Baltimore County, and expanded its offerings.
Drumheller, who took over as CEO in 2020, said he follows two philosophies to create a positive workplace culture. The first is “servant leadership,” which, he said, “puts others front and center, with the leader sharing and putting the needs of employees and the people we support first.”
The second philosophy is the “results pyramid.” That philosophy is based on the idea that results are achieved because of the actions people take, and those actions are a result of the beliefs they hold about what they should do and why. “It is the role of Richcroft leadership to provide experiences that shape beliefs about the organization,” Drumheller said.
To stay competitive in the nonprofit field, Drumheller said, he focuses on three areas: brand awareness, growth and innovation. He has done this by hiring a director of development, who attracted 122 new donors (including 19 new corporate sponsors), adding two new service lines in the past two years, and establishing a foundation to support the new and growing programs.
Drumheller holds a Master of Social Work from the University of Maryland and a Master of Education from Goucher College.
