FORT LAUDERDALE – Broward House last week announced the upcoming departure of its longtime COO, Kathleen Cannon, who has accepted the position of President and CEO of the United Way of Broward County.
Broward House President and CEO Angelo Castillo praised Cannon’s dedication and service. “Kathleen has served Broward House admirably as our VP and Chief Operating Officer for the past ten years,” SAID Castillo.
“We’re very thankful for her many contributions to the agency and for the depth of her personal commitment to our success—so evident in everything she does.” Broward House is South Florida’s oldest and largest HIV/AIDS community service organization.
Stacey Hyde, Broward House’s current Senior Director of Contracts and Performance Management will take over as Vice President and COO. “Stacy has demonstrated her commitment to the Broward House staff, clients, and programs for the past nine years,” said Terry DeCarlo, the organization’s Director of Marketing.
Previously, Hyde served as Broward House’s Director of Case management, Director of Behavioral Health, and Senior Director of Residential Programs. She obtained her masters in social work from Florida International University, and has worked as a case manager, therapist, and program manager with at risk populations, including adult substance abusers, youth at risk for gang activity, families in foster care, and those impacted by HIV/AIDS. She is also active in community events, including the Florida AIDS Walk, World AIDS Day, and The SMART Ride.
Broward House’s Castillo offered praise and encouragement for her outgoing COO. “I knew from the first day I met Kathleen that her talents would be called upon to tackle greater challenges,” she said, adding, “for me personally, it’s been a privilege to have Kathleen on my management team.
Kathleen will remain a personal friend and colleague and she will always be a member of the Broward House family.”
