SARASOTA — United Way Suncoast has launched a search for a new Sarasota area president.
During the search, Bronwyn Beightol will serve as interim area leader, according to a press release. Beightol is the Manatee area president for United Way Suncoast.
“A search team has been formed and we have a clear idea of the leadership qualities and experience we are looking for," United Way Suncoast Sarasota Area Board Chairman David Ford-Coates says in a statement.
