Volunteer Florida Welcomes Chief Executive Officer Chester Spellman

Governor Scott today issued the following statement regarding director of appointments Chester Spellman moving to a new position with Volunteer Florida as its chief executive officer. Chester will continue to serve as director until May 11, 2012 and Hannah Causseaux will assume the role of director on May 1, 2012.

“Chester has been an integral part of my team and has been a tremendous asset in helping me identify highly qualified individuals to serve on various boards throughout the state. Chester was an effective member of my campaign, inaugural activities and has more than 10 years of experience in leading non-profit organizations focused on youth development, education and mentoring. He has spent considerable time volunteering locally and abroad, and I know he will do a fantastic job promoting and implementing volunteerism in his new role at Volunteer Florida. He is passionate about giving back to the people of Florida, and I wish Chester the best of luck. I am pleased that Chester will continue to be a vital member of my administration in his new role.

“I also welcome Hannah Causseaux to my team. She previously served in Speaker Cannon’s office facilitating public records requests and processing legislative appointments. Hannah has served as the finance director of house campaigns and deputy director of special events at the Republican Party of Florida, and as deputy director of scheduling in the Office of the Governor. Hannah has a wealth of experience and will be a great addition to my office.”
