COMPANY & TITLE:
President/CEO, Harvey & Carol Massey Foundation; Sr. Vice President of Community Relations, Massey Services, Inc.
Massey Services’ long term commitment and mission is “being a contributing member to our community and our industry.” The Harvey and Carol Massey Foundation was established in 2014 to help the company further its mission of community service.
The role is a natural fit for Andrea Massey-Farrell, who has a strong passion for giving back to the community.
Andrea describes her responsibilities with the Harvey & Carol Massey Foundation as, “Overseeing its daily operations to ensure that its mission and goals are in alignment with the Board’s plans and vision for charitable giving and outreach. I also manage the strategic community relations efforts for Massey Services and its team members.”
When asked what she likes most in her position, Andrea says, “I enjoy all aspects of this role and enjoy working with people who are making a difference in our community. There are so many groups out there that are doing so much to make Central Florida a better place and that truly inspires me. In addition to our market, Massey Services is in five states now, which gives me the opportunity to work with organizations not only in Florida but also in Georgia, Louisiana, Texas and South Carolina.”
It’s no surprise that the two people who serve as an inspirational example for her are her parents, Harvey and Carol. “They live life, not only talking the talk, but walking the talk. They both agree that giving back is the right thing to do,” she said. “My parent’s philosophy follows one of their favorite quotes that says ‘A society grows great, when old men plant trees, whose shade, they know they shall never sit in.’”
