Newton Sanon, OIC of South Florida
In his capacity of President and CEO of OIC of South Florida, Mr. Sanon is committed to the advancement of the underserved via vocational training and education stating, “Despite the many challenges we face, we live in the best country in the world, with boundless opportunities. I simply look to be a convener of awareness, access and action with the aspiration that all may have at a minimum, the opportunity to realize the greatness within us all.” Mr. Sanon has exponentially expanded OIC’s services in the South Florida area; having started with just two employees (himself and a part-time secretary) and has flourished to approximately 105 staff members. Given the demand for OIC’s services, Mr. Sanon saw it fit to change the agency’s name and reach. In 2009, OIC of Broward became OIC of South Florida — providing services in both Broward County and Miami-Dade County, and (to come in the future) Palm Beach County. OIC of South Florida’s annual budget began at $125,000 upon Mr. Sanon’s arrival, and is now $8 million annually and growing. His stewardship at OIC has solidified over $53 million in state, local, federal and private dollars.
