CiCi Rojas has been named the new president and CEO of Central Exchange, effective February 13.
With more than 400 programs a year, the organization offers a wide variety of personal and professional development and networking opportunities for its 900-plus members.
Those members represent a cross-section of women and men from throughout the Kansas City area, including managers and executives, business owners, non-profit and civic leaders, and community volunteers.
“I’m thrilled for the opportunity to lead the Central Exchange, especially during this time of great energy and growth,” Rojas, a Central Exchange board member, said today in a news release from the Central Exchange.
Rojas will succeed interim CEO Joan Cohen, who took the role after former CEO Ellen D’Amato retired in November.
Rojas has been:
- Vice president of community engagement for Truman Medical Center
- President and CEO of the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce in Dallas and Kansas City
- Vice president of strategic alliance with the U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce
Rojas also serves as the national chairman for the Latino Coalition Foundation and is a member of the Camp Fire USA National Board of Trustees.
Central Exchange members are invited to register and attend the organization's 2013 Annual Meeting on February 15 from 5:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.
Meeting attendees will celebrate the Central Exchange's accomplishments of the past year, and will hear about goals and plans for 2013.
In 2011, Central Exchange underwent a re-branding with a new logo, a modified name (dropping "the" from The Central Exchange) and a new tagline --"Connect. Achieve. Transform."
