Carlos A. Migoya, president and CEO of Jackson Health System, succeeds Miguel G. Farra as board chair of our United Way. Responsible for our overall governance and strategic direction, Migoya spearheads a board comprised of business and community leaders for a two-year term.
“Carlos understands United Way, its work and its mission, as he has held various volunteer leadership roles with the organization over the past three decades,” Farra said. “He is an amazing businessman and an even better Miamian, and I am honored to pass the torch to him and can’t wait to see the great initiatives he’ll lead over the next two years.”
No stranger to United Way’s meaningful work in the community, Migoya served as co-chair of our annual 2003 campaign. He left Miami for a few years but upon returning quickly got back involved with our United Way. In 2015, he co-chaired our Tocqueville Society, leading a team of volunteers who galvanized individuals to give at the highest levels of philanthropy.
“My passion for United Way has held firm over the past 30 years, because it’s one of the best ways to serve this community. I’m proud of the way we are constantly listening to our supporters and subject-matter experts, the way we multiply our dollars and our impacts through a wide range of partnerships, and the way we hold ourselves accountable for results and efficiency,” Migoya said. “I look forward to continuing that work with our phenomenal professional staff and unmatched team of volunteers.”
In addition to being chair of United Way, he currently serves as chairman of the Safety Net Hospitals Alliance of Florida and sits on the boards of the Downtown Charter School in Miami and the Beacon Council. He is a member of the Florida Council of 100, an organization of business leaders that promotes the economic growth of Florida and the economic well-being of Floridians. Migoya earned an undergraduate degree in finance and a master’s in finance from Florida International University.
