Broward House CEO Michael McGuigan accused of child sex abuse resigns effective immediately

BY CAROL MARBIN MILLER, CMARBIN@MIAMIHERALD.COM

Michael McGuigan, the social service administrator who was named CEO of the Broward House HIV service center despite persistent claims that he had made improper advances toward children, tearfully resigned his post at an emergency board meeting Friday afternoon.

The Broward House board of directors then voted to grant McGuigan a severance package — the details of which members declined to disclose.

Mark Budwig, the board’s president, said McGuigan was very emotional when he announced his resignation, which took effect “immediately.” He will be replaced in an interim basis by Stacy Hyde, the chief operating officer, who has been at Broward House for nine years.
