Scott Flagel, CEO retiring

Scott Flagel, CEO of the Lighthouse of Collier for the past 6 plus years, has announced his retirement by the end of the current year.

The Lighthouse has grown significantly over Scott’s tenure.  The annual budget has doubled to over $1M.   The organization has also earned full accreditation from the Association for Education & Rehabilitation of the Blind & Visually Impaired (AER).  Under Scott’s leadership, many new programs and services have been added, including an innovative music program.  The client satisfaction scores have also been consistently high.

The board of directors of the Lighthouse of Collier has created a search committee so that a new CEO can be recruited and a smooth transition in leadership can occur.   Priscilla Grannis, president of the board will be spearheading that committee.

On behalf of the Board of Directors, I thank Scott for his years of service, his many accomplishments and dedication to Lighthouse of Collier.

Priscilla W. Grannis
President, Lighthouse of Collier Board of Directors
