CEO of Miami-Dade Beacon Council ousted

The Beacon Council board ousted Frank Nero as CEO of the Miami-Dade economic-development agency Friday, ending his 17 years as the county’s top recruiter of new companies, according to a board member who participated in the closed-door meeting Friday morning.

The tax-funded non-profit named Robin Reiter, a former chair of the Beacon Council and consultant for local foundations, to be the interim CEO while the board searches for a permanent replacement, Reiter confirmed. In an interview, Reiter said she was no interested in taking the job permanently, and would assist in a nationwide search expected to last between three and six months.

“My role will be to be the glue that keeps everyone together. They are a wonderful group of professionals,’’ Reiter said in an interview Friday. “Frank built a fabulous institution.”

Nero resigned his post on Friday, effective immeidately, the board member said.
