AED Promotes McCabe to Vice President of Education, Programs

The Associated Equipment Distributors has promoted Liz McCabe to vice president of education and programs.

“In her new role, Liz will oversee The AED Foundation staff responsible for our accreditation, apprenticeship, and seminar development,” said Brian McGuire, AED president and CEO. “In a few months, she will also assume responsibility for overseeing the AED Foundation fundraising staff and consultants. In addition, she will serve on the AED management team.”

Before this promotion, McCabe was senior director of education and programming. She managed conference programming, the Leadership Development Institute, and all live and online AED Foundation management programs.

McCabe began her career in education as a fourth-grade teacher in Chicago with Teach for America, working both with Chicago Public Schools and the charter school system. After leaving the classroom, she joined the Technology and Manufacturing Association, where she managed the organization’s training and education programs, including hands-on technical training and its apprentice training program.

McCabe earned a bachelor’s degree, summa cum laude, from Northern Illinois University and a master’s degree in teaching from Dominican University.

“Liz McCabe has been a consummate professional during her time at AED and is well-deserving of this promotion,” said AED Executive Vice President and COO Jason Blake. “The online programs and seminars she manages have been a critical function of AED and The AED Foundation for member engagement and education during the COVID-19 pandemic.”
