RICK DEL MASTRO
After serving on the Life's WORC Board of Directors for over 30 years, Rick Del Mastro stepped down in June, 2019. For many of his years as a Board Member, Rick served as Chairman, helping to grow the agency from 12 homes to over 40 homes and expanding non-residential programs. In April, 2015 Life's WORC opened the Family Center for Autism (FCA), a state of the art 10,000 square foot building serving individuals on the spectrum as well as offering programs for their family members. The opening of the FCA was made possible with a $1 million donation by Rick Del Mastro. The FCA was officially dedicated to Rick and his Family in 2016. It is now The Del Mastro Pavilion - named in honor of Rick and his family.
Rick's current roles and responsibilities vary. He is the owner of several principal companies in the out-of-home industry - OOH Impact, Inc., and City USA, the Media Group comprised of City Outdoor, City Streets and City Eventions. His transition to the outdoor industry resulted from his tenure as President and CEO of Gannett Outdoor New York (currently Outfront Media), which during Rick's tenure was the largest outdoor company in North America. Rick also currently sits on the board of directors of the Outdoor Advertising Association of America (OAAA) and was inducted into OAAA's prestigious Hall of Fame this spring in recognition of his innovations and years of service to the outdoor industry.
Rick and his wife Cynthia have two daughters, Jennifer Del Mastro and Dawn Chruma, son-in-law Chris Chruma, and triplet grandchildren Alexandra, Nicholas and Dylan Chruma. Rick and Cynthia currently reside in East Hampton and Manhattan, New York as well as Miami, Florida.
