Board of Directors

Goodwill Industries of Central Florida is governed by a board of directors that meets quarterly. The board is composed of local business leaders whose valuable perspectives aid us in serving our six-county region.

“Goodwill is the employees that exude an incredible spirit and passion for the roles they play in delivering the mission of “building lives that work.” Goodwill is the management who faithfully lead their teams to deliver goods and services through our job connection centers and retail stores. Goodwill is the executives who work tirelessly to guide the organization to ensure the sustainability of the mission. Goodwill is the Board members who give selflessly to provide their talents to the mission of the organization.”
