“I am honored to begin this new role as president of the Florida Goodwill Association because I am excited to see the new advances we can make that will help us to have an even larger impact on our state," said Goodwill Manasota CEO Bob Rosinsky.
Bradenton, Florida (PRWEB) January 23, 2015
Bob Rosinsky, president & CEO of Goodwill Manasota, was recently appointed as the president of the Florida Goodwill Association (FGA). Rosinsky has devoted 42 years of his professional career to Goodwill and has served as the president & CEO of Goodwill Manasota since 2012.
The FGA is made up of nine territories of Goodwill stores throughout the states of Florida and Alabama. The association was formed approximately five years ago and began as a way for Goodwills throughout the state to meet and discuss day-to-day operations – as well as big picture topics and ideas – in order to improve the impact and reach of Goodwill in each surrounding territory. Within FGA, sub-groups communicate about a variety of topics: donated goods/retail, recycling, mission services, marketing/branding, risk management and human resources.
“When FGA was founded, we had a vision that the leaders of each organization could come together and discuss what was happening: success and failure, ideas and plans. We hoped that this communication would help increase the impact we were able to have throughout the state,” said Bill Gammonley, Florida Goodwill Association group facilitator. “We aim to meet once or twice a year, face to face, but we are always exchanging ideas. Services and programs that are in place and succeeding at various Goodwills are shared. It’s really a win-win for all of us.”
“I have been fortunate to have learned from great leaders throughout my 42-year career with Goodwills around the country. The previous FGA president, Don Roberts, also served as the previous Goodwill Manasota CEO and I am proud to continue his legacy and involvement. Goodwill Manasota is an industry-leading organization, and our Goodwill has been at the forefront of many innovative programs,” said Rosinsky. “I am honored to begin this new role as president of the Florida Goodwill Association because I am excited to see the new advances we can make that will help us to have an even larger impact on our state – we succeed, because we are all working towards the same goals: stronger local economies, a stronger and more empowered workforce, and stronger communities. This association opens the door for creative and effective communication; we are excited to partner with other Goodwills as we continue to change lives through the power of work.”
