Anderson Center for Autism in Staatsburg to have new leader in 2017

Date October 19, 2015

Neil Pollack plans to retire at the end of 2016 from his position of chief executive officer of the Anderson Center for Autism.

Pollack’s leadership of the center, which is in the Staatsburg section of Hyde Park, began in 2001. He will be succeeded in January 2017 by current Chief Operating Officer Patrick Paul, who also joined the center in 2001.

In announcing his retirement plans to the center’s staff of 800 employees, Pollack reflected on his tenure with the organization that transformed the concept of “home” for hundreds of individuals on the autism spectrum.

The center, in a press release, said Paul plans to continue Pollack’s work, serving the more than 500 children and adults currently receiving services from Anderson.
