Friends, families, supporters …

We have some exciting news to share with you.  After a rigorous application and interview process, the Arc Board of Directors unanimously agreed to appoint Sean McLaughlin as the new CEO of Arc Marion!

Sean’s experience with individuals who have intellectual and developmental disabilities came at an early age, as he grew up in a home with an aunt who had Down Syndrome.  Much of his life’s work has revolved around him supporting and advocating for our most vulnerable citizens.  Mr. McLaughlin owned a consulting firm, that assisted families with moving to Florida and navigating through the support systems, and setting up services.  Sean also was the COO for a former Arc in southwest Florida. There, he focused on creating unique programs and expanding services and supports. From the start of Sean’s tenure, and throughout much of COVID, he was able to help significantly increase revenue, while bringing services to hundreds of new clients.

In searching for a new CEO, our desire was to find a person with strong leadership and organizational capabilities, a visionary who will take us forward into a new and rapidly changing world.  More importantly, we wanted a leader who is committed to creating opportunities and demolishing barriers, so that people with disabilities in Marion County, can be seen, heard and valued.  In Sean, we found that his passion is infectious, and, we believe that you will too.
