PHOENIX, Ariz. (April 9, 2021): Following an extensive national search, Christopher Rodriguez, who has spent the past two decades working and advocating for and on behalf of individuals with disabilities, has been named President and CEO at Ability360, effective June 1.
Perhaps [Pangrazio’s] proudest accomplishment, though, is that Ability360 is the embodiment of inclusivity, creating and sustaining long-standing careers for some of its employees (with and without disabilities). Some staff members have been with the organization for decades.
Part of my job has always been to identify opportunities to communicate our message to the public. You see, Phil’s office is no bigger and no grander than anyone else’s here at Ability360. But that’s the thing about Phil; he’s never been about being the “face” of Ability360. He’s always been more than willing to let others jump in front of a camera or provide a quote to a reporter. That’s Phil.
A reflection on Phil Pangrazio’s legacy from his colleagues in our community.
