As a non-native US citizen, Gleb Zarkh has lived across the world, growing up in Belarus, Russia, Chicago, Skokie, and Boston. In his professional career as CFO at Eden Senior Care, Gleb is responsible for the financial planning and strategic management of a company which provides nursing facilities and assisted living communities for the elderly. Outside of work, Gleb has been deeply involved as a member of JUF's Young Leadership Division (YLD) board for the last four years, where he has chaired three committees. In addition to his YLD leadership, Gleb has participated in Gesher, YLD's premier leadership development, training, and education series where participants develop relationships with fellow community leaders and work to make a difference in the Chicago Jewish community.
