Christopher T. Spiro, CEO/Chief Creative Officer at Spiro & Associates Marketing, Advertising, Public Relations and Brand Architecture, has been appointed to the Board of Directors of the American Red Cross, Florida’s Southern Gulf Chapter. He will help to serve over one million residents in Collier, Glades, Hendry and Lee counties for three terms, up to nine years.
Nominated by the Board of Governors who recognized Spiro’s leadership abilities and experience, he will help develop the American Red Cross’ vision for the region, as well as work with other community business professionals to determine the policies that guide the local chapter’s decisions and manage donor contributions.
“Humbled is a word I use incredibly often as an entrepreneur with the opportunity to dive into so many worthwhile causes, but that is the only word that can describe earning a position for an organization that provides aid of every kind from the generosity in people’s hearts,” Spiro said.
Over nearly a decade, Spiro and the American Red Cross South Florida Region will exponentially add to the 52,000 mental health contacts who provided support and care to those impacted by recent weather events across six states and respond to thousands of other natural and man-made disasters that heavily impact Southwest Florida.
