The organization announced its new leader on Friday.

Iorio served as Tampa's mayor from 2003-2011. A news release from Big Brothers Big Sisters of America noted some of Iorio's accomplishments while in office. Those included working with diverse communities and leaders, revitalizing downtown Tampa, improving neighborhoods, reducing crime and bringing fiscal soundness to her city.
