Bill Feinberg receives outstanding service award after successfully completing two years as Habitat Broward Chairman of the Board.
After completing a two-year tenure in August, Bill Feinberg passes the torch to new Chairman Robert Taylor Jr. of Burdette Beckmann, Inc. Feinberg was part of the team that allowed Habitat Broward to obtain a nine-acre parcel, which will be the site for A Rick Case Habitat Community, a new 77-home community in Pompano Beach. Bill has engaged the political, religious and business leaders in the community to stand behind it and gather the funds to start this ambitious project.
As Chair, Robert will provide strategic leadership and fiduciary oversight as he leads a dynamic Board and organization over the next two years, which include ambitious plans for the agency’s growth.
“We are honored to have Robert serve as our chair,” said Nancy Robin, Habitat Broward’s CEO and executive director. “His family and company, Burdette Beckmann, Inc. (BBI), are among our most philanthropic partners. Robert also brings a strong business acumen to our team to lead us during this exciting time in our history.”
