CEO APPOINTEDUnited Spinal Assoc Names New Leader

The United Spinal Association recently announced Vincenzo (Enzo) Piscopo, an experienced professional in diversity, inclusion and social causes, has been appointed president and CEO by the organization’s board of directors. Piscopo began his tenure as United Spinal’s president and CEO on Nov. 16, replacing James Weisman, who is retiring after 40 years of service to the disability community as an advocate for disability rights and accessible transportation. “I’m honored to lead United Spinal’s important mission to improve the quality of life and independence of people with spinal cord injuries and disorders and to ensure the inclusion of wheelchair users in all facets of our society,” said Piscopo. “When we do this, not only do people with disabilities win, but our communities, employers and all of society wins.” Piscopo is not immediately planning to relocate from his home in Altlanta, Ga., but said he would be available to travel as much as possible. “This is a new world,” he said. “The pandemic has made us think differently about working. “As we approach our 75th Anniversary next year, we are grateful to have Enzo continue United Spinal’s legacy of providing our members programs and services that maximize their independence and enable them to remain active in their communities,” said Weisman.
