LARC (Lee County Association for Remarkable Citizens), a nonprofit organization based in Fort Myers that provides services to people with developmental disabilities and their families, recently named Kevin Lewis its new executive director.
Lewis replaces Roger Bradley who retired last month after working with the agency for over 30 years, a release posted on the Greater Fort Myers Chamber Of Commerce website said.
"The board is extremely pleased to have Kevin as executive director," LARC Board President Pete D'Alessandro said in the release. "We look forward to LARC’s growth under Kevin’s leadership as we continue to evolve and meet the changing needs of clients, families and the community in future years."
Lewis most recently was CEO of SalusCare, which was formed in 2013 by merging Southwest Florida Addiction Services (SWFAS) and Lee Mental Health. He helped lead the merger as SWFAS CEO, a position he held for two decades, the release said.
"I am excited to have the opportunity to work with and lead the staff of LARC, an experienced and talented group of professionals with a focus on client care that is unsurpassed," Lewis said in the release. "It’s a privilege to help individuals and families maximize their abilities to achieve the highest level of satisfaction with their lives and community involvement – not unlike most of us who seek similar goals."
