Community Partners CEO one of 56 professionals selected for esteemed program 


(WEST PALM BEACH, FL) July 272018  Scott Hansel, CEO of Community Partners, has been accepted into the 2018-19 Leadership Palm Beach County (LPBC) Engage program. The Leadership Engage program is a highly competitive 10-month program which offers participants a powerful new network and a transformative learning experience, with the intent to better Palm Beach County. 


Participants, who come from diverse industries and backgrounds, will gain a deeper understanding of their own leadership styles as well as understand the ways in which they can make significant improvements in the community.  


Hansel says that he’s honored to have been selected for this year’s class among the largest-ever number of program applicants. “Community Partners’ relationship with Leadership Palm Beach County goes back decades. Alumni on our senior management team emphasized the importance of understanding our county’s unique assets and challenges and the value of forming lasting relationships with other community leaders. Their enthusiasm inspired me to apply, and I’m looking forward to learning from and collaborating with my own LPBC class as we pursue this journey together,” he says.  


The class members were selected for their leadership and service in their professional and civic lives. They will meet as a group for one full-day each month, from September to May, and travel on a bus to all areas of the county, exploring program topics such as agriculture, education, public safety, and healthcare. They will also break up into smaller groups to do community engagement projects, benefiting local non-profits and aimed at tackling challenges facing the region.   


Leadership Engage is the flagship program for LPBC which unites leaders to improve Palm Beach County and deepens their civic commitment and awareness of diverse issues and industries.
