President and CEO Erin McLeod is featured on the cover of February’s West Coast Woman.

As the Friendship Centers’ first woman President and only the second President and CEO in the organization’s 42 year history, Erin is leading the way to address the growing numbers and needs of older adults in Sarasota, DeSoto, Collier, Charlotte and Lee Counties.

Erin has been with the Centers for more than ten years, working closely with former President and CEO Bob Carter, advancing to Senior Vice President and, in the process, gaining the wisdom and background to hit the ground running in her new position. Among her priorities: broadening the scope of technology and the launch of the new Friendship Centers for Aging Studies this spring.
