Autism center CEO to retire

Date October 21, 2015

Anderson Center for Autism, Staatsburg, announced the retirement of Neil Pollack, effective at the end of 2016.

“Fifteen years ago, I was asked to take on a fantastic challenge, leading Anderson to a place of stability, longevity, and most importantly, a place of passion for opportunity,” said Pollack to his staff recently.

In recent years, the 100-acre campus transformed into the Anderson Village, a network of adult services was built, investments were made to improve curriculum, education, clinical services, technology and residences, and Anderson Family Partners was formed — a parent-driven advocacy group.

Chief Operating Officer Patrick Paul will assume the position of CEO in January 2017. Paul plans to continue Pollack’s work in his new role, serving more than 500 children and adults currently receiving services from the center.
