Springbrook Announces Deputy Executive Director for Programs

seth-haight-202x300.jpgSpringbrook has appointed Seth Haight as Deputy Executive Director for Programs, effective November 9, 2009.  The position of Deputy Executive Director is new to the agency.  It comes after ten years of tremendous growth for Springbrook, which currently serves over 650 individuals and families, employs more than 800 people and has an annual budget of approximately $32 million.  The agency is expected to grow even larger thanks to a planned expansion to the School at Springbrook, a residential and day school for students with developmental disabilities. 

As Deputy Executive Director, Haight will oversee Springbrook's three major program areas -- the School at Springbrook, Community Homes and Community Services.  He will also be responsible for systems management and implementation of major projects according to the agency's strategic and business plans.

"With his knowledge of the area, incisive approach to problem solving and business background, Seth brings great capacity to Springbrook," said Executive Director Patricia Kennedy.  "These skills, coupled with his strong commitment to our mission and philosophy, make him the ideal person for this new position."

Haight comes to Springbrook from Hartwick College where he has been a member of the Development staff since 2004, most recently as Vice President for Institutional Advancement.  Prior to his position at the College, he was employed by Tyco International in a number of capacities, including Global Business Development Manager and Eastern Regional Business Manager.  Haight received his Bachelor of Arts from Hartwick College and his MBA from Boston University's School of Management.  A native of Delhi, he currently lives in Oneonta with his wife and three children.
