The United Way of Greater Rochester Inc. will be looking for a new president and CEO. Peter Carpino plans to retire June 30, 2015.
The organization has begun a national search for his successor, pulling together a 13-member search committee led by David Fiedler, CEO of ESL Federal Credit Union and past chairman of the United Way board.
Carpino joined the United Way of Greater Rochester as president and CEO in 2005. Prior to that he had spent 20 years as president of the United Way of Greater Lehigh Valley in Pennsylvania and for 11 years had served at the United Way of Greater Rochester, both as marketing director and later as president for marketing and resource development.
"Peter Carpino has been a strong leader for our United Way and the entire Rochester community,” said Colleen Wegman, United Way chairman, in a statement. “We are so grateful for his many contributions and leadership through challenging times over the last decade and are also looking forward to what the future holds as we move the organization forward."
Under Carpino, the United Way concentrated its funding efforts, using both data analysis and extensive feedback from service providers, to identify five areas of focus. Known as the Blueprint for Change, this program channeled funding to agencies within these focus areas that had shown themselves to be most effective.
