It is with a mix of sadness and gratitude that the Board of Directors announces the retirement of Rocco Gizzarelli as Executive Director of the Catholic Children’s Aid Society of Hamilton. Rocco will be leaving the agency June 30, 2022.
Rocco Gizzarelli has long been an integral part of the Society with his career spanning 36 years. In his time as Executive Director, Rocco has demonstrated an ability to mentor and lead that is second to none. Over his long career and since being appointed as Executive Director in 2015, Rocco has been a strategic and effective presence at the agency.
While facing one of the most challenging events we have ever experienced, a global pandemic, Rocco has played a critical role in maintaining morale, our commitment to the vision and mission of the organization and inspired a tangible spiritual evolution at the Catholic Children’s Aid Society which will endure for years to come. As a resilient and bold leader, we have been blessed to have been able to put our trust in Rocco as he continues to encourage progress within the organization. His exceptional vision and leadership will be greatly missed.
