John Gibson, a managing director at Goldman Sachs, is the new board chairman at Dallas CASA. The board, comprised of a diverse group of corporate executives, community leaders and philanthropists, advises Dallas CASA, a nonprofit organization that provides trained volunteers to advocate for abused and neglected children in court.
On an average day in Dallas County, more than 2,000 abused and neglected children live in foster care because they cannot safely live at home. CASA volunteers are appointed by judges to advocate for the best interests of children under the protective care of the courts so they will have safe, permanent homes where they can thrive.
Gibson, the new board chair, has worked for Goldman Sachs for 20 years. In addition to leading the board, he is Dallas CASA’s first board chair to serve as an advocate. He is currently working three open cases for kids who’ve been removed from their homes. A Harvard graduate, Gibson has also served on the Dallas Winds board.
Mike Brosin and Cynthia Comparin have joined the Dallas CASA board as new members.
Brosin, a Dallas resident, is managing partner of Crest Cadillac / Crest Infiniti. Brosin attended Southern Arkansas University and worked his way up through the trenches to managing partner. His wife, Jana Brosin, is a Dallas CASA volunteer.
Comparin, a Dallas resident, is chief executive office of Animato, which she founded in 1997. Formerly president of Alltell’s Enterprise Network Services and vice president and general manager for Nortel’s Network Transformation Services Division, Comparin is very involved in community organizations and mentors disadvantaged high school students. She is a graduate of the University of Texas at Austin.
