Tom Saffel, a Santa Rosa Beach resident in South Walton County for the past 13 years, recently joined the Emerald Coast Children’s Advocacy Center’s (ECCAC) board of directors.
Saffel is the soon to be retired business development manager working in sales coordination with key national customers for Kimberly Clark. He and his wife of 37 years, Dana, have made Santa Rosa Beach their “forever home”. They have two grown sons. The Saffels are annual contributors to Alaqua Animal Rescue, Sinfonia, American Cancer Society and Destin Charity Wine Auction Foundation.
“I hope to bring my marketing, sales, interpersonal skills and financial background to the ECCAC board,” said Saffel. “When we moved here, we discovered how amazing this community is at giving back, unlike we’ve ever experienced in previous locations. I am motivated to be a part of the team and help the centers expand their support of abused children and get a little closer to there no longer being a need for ECCAC to exist. That would be a good thing.”
