FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. — CenterLink on Jan. 19 announced longtime CEO Terry Stone will leave the organization once his contract ends in 2017.
“We are grateful for Terry’s dedicated leadership at CenterLink over so many years,” said Chris Bartlett, co-chair of the CenterLink board of directors, in a statement.
CenterLink was based in Washington in 2006 when Stone became its CEO.
Forty-five LGBT community centers were affiliated with CenterLink at the time. That number has grown to more than 170 in the U.S. and around the world.
“He grew the organization to fully represent the great diversity of LGBT centers across the nation,” said Bartlett. “He made himself available both to centers and their leadership so that LGBT centers and the communities they serve are stronger as a result of his vision and commitment.”
