Meet Our President & CEO
STANLEY A. HOLBROOK
Stan Holbrook graduated from the Heinz School of Public Policy and Management of Carnegie Mellon University with a Master’s Degree in Public Management. In addition, he has an MBA in International Business and Strategic Planning from Point Park College. Mr. Holbrook also graduated from Geneva College with a Bachelor’s Degree in Human Resource Management. Currently he is a student at the Reformed Presybterian Theological Seminary.
With over twenty years of experience, Mr. Holbrook has added valuable support to the field of Human Services. Prior to his current position as President & CEO of Three Rivers Center for Independent Living, he worked as the Director of Special Projects at the Community College of Allegheny County (CCAC) in Braddock, focusing on the recruitment, enrollment and retention of students. He also served as the Director of the Braddock Regional Service Center, managing the CCAS Host Agency in tasks such as job placement, training and skill building.
Inspired by an ad in 2001 for the Assistant Director’s position at TRCIL, Mr. Holbrook decided he wanted to expand his passion for the Human Services field and hone his skills in providing an equal opportunity to people with disabilities. In September of 2004, Mr. Holbrook became President & CEO of TRCIL. With the help of his staff, he has made TRCIL a valuable resource for people with disabilities and has nearly tripled the organization’s annual operating budget.
Mr. Holbrook is also extremely active in the community, serving on committees and boards such as the American Society of Aging and the National Council for Independent Living (NCIL). He was instrumental in NCIL’s development of a diversity initiative and is still actively leading the caucus in strategic planning. He also volunteered with the Network of Multicultural Agencies and the National Rehabilitation Association. He is Vice-Chair of the Governor-appointed Statewide Independent Living Council. Mr. Holbrook also served as a delegate to the White House Commission on Aging in 2005.
When not helping in the community, Mr. Holbrook enjoys spending time with his wife, five children and grandchildren. He is also a Minister at First Baptist Church of Penn Hills and is actively involved in various ministries. Happily, he would like to continue to follow his calling and make an impact in the lives of people with disabilities and in the community at large.
