LIVINGSTON COUNTY – United Way of Greater Rochester has announced that a new president and CEO will soon step into the fold for Peter Carpino, who served as United Way president for a decade.
According to a press release from United Way, Fran Weisberg was selected as part of a national search by a 14-member committee, chaired by Dave Fiedler, CEO of ESL Federal Credit Union, and is set to start work in her new role on May 1, 2015.
“I’m embracing the change,” said Karen Rumbfola, Regional Director for United Way for Livingston County. “I’m looking forward to working with Fran as she moves our organization forward into the future.”
Carpino, who served as United Way president for a decade, will remain with the organization through June 30 to support the transition.
A longtime Rochester resident, Fran is United Way of Greater Rochester’s sixth president and first woman leader in the organization’s history. She is also a key member of our Women’s Leadership Council, serving as its founding co-chair from 2012-2014. Fran’s strong record of community leadership is a key reason why we know she is the right leader for our United Way’s future.
United Way thanks everyone involved for being part of that future, and thanks WLC donors, saying that they hope everyone continues to join Fran, United Way and our entire community as they change the world together.
