Dress For Success Palm Beaches Elects New Board Chair and Fills Two Vacancies

 

(PALM SPRINGS, FL – JUNE 9, 2020) — Pamela Rada, a 15-year marketing veteran, is the newly elected board chair of Dress for Success Palm Beaches (DFSPB).

She succeeds Diane Katz, Ph.D., who is stepping down from the nonprofit’s board of directors after seven years, including the past two-and-a-half years as its chair.

          In October, 2019, Rada was tapped by Tenet Healthcare to oversee marketing, advertising and community relations for St. Mary’s Medical Center and Palm Beach Children’s Hospital. In her career, she has held various executive marketing positions, most recently with both New England Development, and, prior to that, with Simon Property Group at their respective retail operations in Palm Beach County. She became a member of the DFSPB board in 2019 having been an active volunteer chair of the organization’s Young Executives for Success, Y.E.S!, committee for 40-years-and-under supporters. She serves on numerous other nonprofit committees including those for Healthy Mothers Healthy Babies and COMPASS, and is a member of the Leadership Palm Beach County Class of 2020. She resides in Royal Palm Beach with her husband and four-year-old daughter.

          The DFSPB board also voted two new directors to fill recent vacancies. Caressa González is president and CEO of Manhattan Trophy & Promotion on North Dixie Highway in Lake Worth Beach. A graduate of Florida International University with a degree in public relations, she started her career in events and planning for the school’s office of the president. What followed was 12 years of experience in corporate marketing for companies such as McDonald’s and Nissan. She recently took ownership of Manhattan, a 50-year-old retail resource for awards, recognition and personalized promotional needs. González began her association with DFSPB in 2019 as a member of Y.E.S! and this year became its chair. She and her fiancé are residents of Lake Worth Beach.

          Faith Meyer, who was co-chair of DFSPB’s record-breaking Style for Hope fundraising luncheon in March and has served on the committee the past two years, also has taken a seat on the 15-member board. With a B.A. in journalism from University of Missouri-Columbia, Meyer’s career in communications spans the past 40 years and includes media relations for the University of Northern Iowa for more than 12 years. Additionally, as a consultant to two John Deere factories, she authored books that chronicle their individual histories, while also managing their communications and event planning needs. She and her husband are active volunteers at the hydroponic farm in Palm City that benefits House of Hope in Martin County. They are residents of Jupiter.
