Envision recently named Michael Monteferrante as president and chief executive officer (CEO). As CEO, Monteferrante will concentrate on executing the organization’s mission, growing the Envision Rehabilitation Center, enhancing the Envision Foundation and diversifying Envision Industries.
“Providing the best service and broadest outreach possible for people who are blind or visually impaired will be my focus,” he said.
