ELMSFORD, N.Y. – The Food Bank for Westchester has announced the appointment of Maria Bronzi of White Plains as chair of its Board of Directors.
Bronzi succeeds Rick Rakow who held the position for four years and was instrumental in the growth and expansion of the Food Bank. Bronzi is a director of Altium Wealth Management in Purchase, a leading wealth management firm whose strategies are based on process, not products.
Bronzi and the team at Altium build effective strategies and solutions for individual investors and corporate clients. Prior to joining Altium, she served in leadership roles at Webster Bank in the Westchester and Fairfield markets. Her team led the bank in customer satisfaction, overall performance, increased profitability and community service engagement.
Bronzi has been a member of the Food Bank's Board of Directors since October 2013. She is chairperson of The Business Council of Westchester’s Rising Stars Alumni Group and was a 2014 Corporate Citizen Honoree for St. Christopher’s Inc.
“I think it’s terrific that despite the many demands on her time each day, Maria has committed to expand her role in the fight against hunger in Westchester County,'' said Ellen Lynch, president and CEO of the Food Bank.
"She has seemingly boundless energy, and that works well for us because we have a lot to do. Maria is directing her passion and determination at a critically important target -- closing the meal gap for the 200,000 people in our county who are food insecure,'' Lynch said.
Bronzi said, “I’m thrilled to take on this leadership role at a critical time for our neighbors. With so many people facing food insecurity in our county, we have an urgent mission to accomplish. I’m looking forward to raising awareness of the challenges and effectively engaging individuals and partners in providing solutions.”
Joining the executive team of the Food Bank’s board are Vice Chairs Scott Boilen, president of AllStar Products Group, and Sue Norton, vice president of Global Citizenship & Sustainability at PepsiCo.
