The Lutheran Services Florida (LSF) board of directors announced today that Sam Sipes, President and Chief Operating Officer of Austin-based Lutheran Social Services of the South (LSS), has been chosen as the agency's new President and CEO succeeding James A. Wells, current LSF President and CEO, 65, who has decided to retire after leading the agency for the past nine years.
"We welcome Sam Sipes to "The LSF Family" and look forward to working with him as we continue to expand our programs to serve Florida's children and families in need," said Roger Sellew, Chairman of the LSF Board of Directors.
Prior to his position at LSS, Sipes was employed at the Texas Department of Mental Health and Mental Retardation where he shared responsibility for implementing statewide programs and developing state policies and procedures for people with mental illness and developmental disabilities. Currently, he serves on the boards of the New York-based Council on Accreditation of Child and Family Services, the Dallas-based Texas Mezzanine Fund, and the Austin-based Lutheran Foundation of the Southwest.
