Mobile Meals of Spartanburg Announces New CEO, Laura Boles, succeeding founding CEO and President Jayne McQueen

Mobile Meals of Spartanburg is excited to announce the appointment of Laura Boles as the incoming President and Chief Executive Officer.  She will succeed Jayne McQueen, who is retiring to a part-time role later this year.  McQueen has led Mobile Meals since its founding in 1977, building the organization into a thriving operation which serves 1300 homebound people a nutritious meal each weekday.  Boles brings a diverse background of experience in leadership roles and a passion for serving the community.

“I am thrilled to join the team at Mobile Meals,” said Boles. “I have had the privilege for several years to volunteer for this organization – delivering meals and serving on the Board of Directors.  Spending time with the recipients on my route and getting to know them on a personal level is truly rewarding.  I am incredibly grateful to answer the call to lead this ministry and have the chance to work even more closely with our dedicated team, volunteers, and partners to continue serving our community.  It is the honor of a lifetime to work with Jayne and build on the legacy that she has grown over the last 47 years.”

Boles most recently served as the Marketing Director of Eggs Up Grill, joining that organization in 2018.  Prior to Eggs Up Grill, she served as an Executive Producer at WSPA-TV.  She has a strong track record of successfully leading organizations through periods of growth and transformation.  Boles and McQueen will work side-by-side for several months during this transition, after which McQueen will stay on in a part-time capacity.

“I am confident that Laura is the perfect fit to lead Mobile Meals of Spartanburg into its next chapter,” said Jayne McQueen.  “Laura and I both felt this was God’s call for her to lead this ministry and I am thrilled that after interviewing multiple applicants, the Search Committee and Board of Directors unanimously agreed and affirmed this appointment.  I look forward to working closely with her throughout this transition and beyond.”

Boles is a graduate of Washington and Lee University.  She and her husband, Baker, live in Spartanburg with their two children, Bennett and Ellie.  They are active members of First Presbyterian Church of Spartanburg.
