“After 25 wonderful years, I will officially retire as Chief Executive Officer at the end of this calendar year,” said Kint. “During those years I have been fortunate enough to accomplish many career goals and lead some important initiatives that fight and advocate for everyone in our community.”
During Kint’s tenure at United Way, he played a critical role in founding the Mental Health Collaborative. And later the Kindergarten Readiness Collaborative, and the recently established Senior Collaborative of Indian River County.
Prior to his career with United Way, Kint dedicated 10 years to Riverside Theatre. During this time, he was instrumental in developing the educational program for the Children’s Theatre and the building of the Agnes Wahlstrom Youth Playhouse.
“I am very appreciative for the immense support of our community and the dedication for United Way and its mission. I will look back at this period with fond memories and great appreciation,” Kint said.
November of this year will mark Kint’s 25th anniversary at United Way of Indian River County.
