On January 7, 2015, Big Brothers Big Sisters of America announced that it is relocating its national headquarters from Dallas, Texas to Tampa, Florida. The transition will begin immediately with operations fully effective by March 2015.
BBBSA President and CEO and former Mayor of Tampa, Pam Iorio, recently committed to leading the organization through 2019. After this decision, BBBSA’s leadership determined that the Tampa Bay relocation allows BBBSA to fully capitalize on Iorio’s strengths and provides a lasting location for the organization to grow.
“By relocating to Tampa, the national headquarters will undoubtedly grow and prosper in our positive business and philanthropic climate,” said Pam Iorio, president and CEO. “This is our new and permanent home that will reinvigorate our national organization for decades to come.”
The move brings job creation to Tampa Bay as well as increased national exposure. Board members, affiliate CEOs and staff will travel to Tampa for meetings and conferences – creating ongoing national exposure for our region with increased visitors and hotel occupancy.
“This decision positions Tampa as the epicenter of a national organization with a strong brand-name and rich history,” said Dr. Ronald Vaughn, Chairman of the Tampa Hillsborough Economic Development Corporation and President of the University of Tampa. “Influential board members, donors and affiliate organizations will convene in Tampa from around the globe to reinvigorate Big Brothers Big Sisters and chart its future. This announcement underscores the desirability of Hillsborough County as a national headquarter location for corporations and nonprofit organizations and we thank former Mayor Pam Iorio for her leadership in bringing this deal home.”
The enthusiasm over the relocation of BBBSA to Tampa Bay has already been demonstrated by the following donations: Five years of Class A office space was donated by Parkway Properties for the national headquarters in the Westshore Business District, The Beck Group donated the office space build out, and ROF donated design services and furniture. Further, an anonymous Tampa donor has agreed to pay any moving expenses.
“Tampa has a philanthropic spirit and embraces organizations that create impactful change,” said Liz Smith, chairman of the board and CEO for Bloomin’ Brands and Big Brothers Big Sisters of America board member. “Big Brothers Big Sisters of America has a proven impact in this region that will grow as the national organization relocates to Tampa.”
