The Bridge of Northeast Florida Announces New CEO

The Bridge of Northeast Florida Board of Directors announced the promotion of Shariffa A. Spicer as its new chief executive officer. Spicer recently celebrated her one year anniversary with The Bridge as vice president of external affairs. This promotion leads Spicer to become the second CEO in the organization’s 32-year history. 

Prior to joining The Bridge, Spicer held a leadership role serving as executive director at The Guardian Catholic Schools and mental health administrator at the Dekalb County Community Service Board in Atlanta, Ga.  With a comprehensive background in child advocacy and community relations, Spicer holds a bachelor’s degree in social work from Tuskegee University and a master’s of degree in alternative dispute resolution from Nova Southeastern University in Fort. Lauderdale, Fla. 

“I’ve had the distinct privilege of working with the most talented employees and senior leadership team in the non-profit sector,” said Spicer. “I welcome this opportunity to, together, further serve Jacksonville and continue to promote sustainable programs and traditions that we all have come to respect about The Bridge. With the support of the Board, donors and funders, we can continue to build and strengthen The Bridge following in the footsteps of long-time CEO and Founder, Dr. Davy Parrish,” said Spicer.
