On June 15, the Board of Directors of Jawonio Inc unanimously approved Associate Executive Director, Randi Rios-Castro, to become the next CEO of Jawonio. Randi will succeed Jill A. Warner, who is retiring on September 30, 2020. Warner will stay on until the end of the year to work on the final stages of the campus revitalization and capital campaign.
“For the past two years, I have had the opportunity to work with Randi on a variety of important agency issues. She continues to impress me with how quickly she has developed a deep knowledge of both the program and the operations areas throughout the organization,” said Michael Algranati Chairman, Jawonio Inc Board of Directors. “At the same time, Randi has begun development of internal systems that will streamline agency processes and procedures. Additionally, Randi has begun to establish important community relationships by working closely with our non-profit, business and government partners on the state and local levels.”
Warner commended Rios-Castro, saying she is “the right person at the right time, who will embrace the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead and in doing so, ensure a strong and sustainable future for Jawonio.”
“We’re very proud of Randi,” said CP State CEO and President Susan A. Constantino. “She is a fitting successor to Jill, and we wish them both the best.”
“We are sorry to see Jill Warner go, but Jawonio will be in very capable hands” said CP State Executive Director Mike Alvaro. “Randi will be only the fifth CEO in the agency’s 73-year history, and that is a testament to the quality of their leadership.”
