ECHO begins search for NEW EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR
BRANDON, Fla. — The Emergency Care Help Organization (ECHO) is looking for a new leader to take the community-based relief group through its enhanced mission to serve Eastern Hillsborough County families.
After nearly 13 years with ECHO, CEO Stacey Efaw is stepping away from the helm to help with a burgeoning family business opportunity in Pinellas County.
“I have never left a job that I still loved but I am excited about my future,” she said, addressing member of the ECHO Board of Directors. “I am also excited about the future of ECHO!”
While Stacey has committed to staying until a new EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR is in place, a nationwide, and — thanks to the web, worldwide search is underway.
She will be dearly missed by our Board, staff, volunteers and our community at-large, said Board President Cami Gibertini, who went on to explain that the new role of EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR is an integral position “in leading the transformation of ECHO from its current stage to a more mature organization capable of delivering on its long term vision.”
Other board members — and community leaders — were equally appreciative of the work Ms. Efaw has done with the home-grown Brandon-based charity, The now-bursting-at-the seams home on N. Parsons Avenue testament to the growth, outreach and empowerment that has brought relief to more than 170,000 clients since it opened its doors in 1987.
“Although her successor has tremendously large shoes to fill, they will receive the tremendous blessing of taking the wheel of a ship headed full-steam ahead!” said Ron Smith, Minister of Young Adults at First Baptist Church of Brandon and a member of the ECHO Board of Directors.
The search begins for the new EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR immediately.
