Thomas O'Connor

The Board of Trustees of the Al Sigl Community of Agencies has named a new president. Thomas O'Connor will fill that role, effective in June, replacing Dan Meyers who is retiring after 30 years with the organization.

O'Connor is a Rochester native who joined Al Sigl in 2008 and was promoted to Vice President of Operations in 2011. He recently led a number of modernization projects for the agencies.

Meyers said that O'Connor has shown strategic skill and practical know-how in taking on all of Al Sigl's real estate portfolio and projects, and said that "his positive energy will take Al Sigl where it needs to go to keep achieving more together."

Chairman of the Board of Trustees, Karen Gallina, said that O'Connor has a solid understanding of the needs of their member agencies and the mission to improve access and inclusion for everyone who uses Al Sigl's services.
