Pembroke Pines Commissioner Angelo Castillo has retired as president and CEO of Broward House, South Florida's oldest HIV/AIDS service agency.
Here's the Broward House news release:
Fort Lauderdale, FL; September 4, 2011 – Broward House, South Florida's oldest and largest HIV/AIDS community service organization today announced that President and CEO Angelo Castillo has retired after nine years of service to the agency.
"A feeling has been growing in me for a while. It's been telling me the time is right for to find a new challenge. Nine years is a long time for any CEO especially given everything that we've done at Broward House” said Castillo "When I came to the agency in 2003 it faced some serious administrative challenges. We had an amazing staff back then, running excellent programs just as we do now. However, the business practices needed reforming. So we reformed how the agency did business, while keeping the core mission intact. We got stronger, recovered and then grew Broward House from a $4 million organization into the $12 million agency it is today. Few organizations specializing in HIV/AIDS offer the array of health, social, and behavioral services that Broward House offers. Even fewer offer all that in combination with an excellent housing opportunities. None does it better. Broward House sets the standard, and for me, it's been an absolute pleasure to see that evolve”.
Immediately, upon Angelo’s retirement announcement, the Executive Committee appointed Michael McGuigan, formerly Broward House’s Vice President and Chief Administrative Officer to the role of President and CEO. “What Broward House is today is a true testament to the man that Angelo Castillo is” said Mark Budwig, Board President. “The agency would not be as large as it is or offer as many services had it not been for the guidance and leadership of Angelo”.
