PPSENFL’s Chief Development Officer takes on leadership of regional health care provider at a critical time for reproductive health care

West Palm Beach – The board of directors of Planned Parenthood of South, East and North Florida (PPSENFL) is excited to announce Alexandra Mandado has been selected as our new President and CEO. Mandado has a long and deep connection to the organization. She currently serves as the Chief Development Officer and was a Planned Parenthood patient herself from a young age. She will assume this leadership role with plenty of challenges to tackle as Florida is facing the threat of an abortion ban in the Florida Legislature and with Roe v. Wade hanging in the balance at the U.S. Supreme Court.

“It is my great honor to have been selected to serve in this critical role,” said Mandado. “I was a patient at Planned Parenthood in my teens. And I’ve helped raise resources for many years now to ensure our health care providers can continue serving Florida’s diverse population. I have been committed to Planned Parenthood my whole life. I am ready now to assume this leadership role to guide us through the challenges ahead. We will always be here for our patients and our communities, no matter what.”

Mandado brings a depth of experience and a passionate commitment to ensuring that Florida remains a safe haven for reproductive health care for people of all backgrounds and means. She has served as PPSENFL’s Chief Development Officer for the last fifteen years and as a strategic partner with the national federation. Mandado will assume her new role on April 1st.

Mandado takes over leadership of the organization following the retirement of longtime President and CEO Lillian Tamayo. As a key senior staffer, she has worked alongside Tamayo on strategic planning, affiliate growth, and managing a robust philanthropy department. In short, no one knows the inner workings of PPSENFL better than she does.

“Alex is committed to ensuring we evolve side by side with our communities, meeting our changing needs and ensuring that Planned Parenthood will always be here for the patients who rely on us,” said Tamayo. “As a Latina, mother, and daughter of Cuban and Chilean immigrants, Alex is committed to centering racial equity, diversity and inclusion in our work and mission. I have every confidence she will continue to build and grow our affiliate for years to come.”

The ideal CEO was identified as someone who is a champion for justice, diversity, equity, and inclusion – a relationship and community builder with a passion for the mission. Alexandra Mandado is that person.


For over 50 years, PPSENFL has been committed to delivering the highest quality reproductive health care, teaching comprehensive and inclusive sex education, and working diligently to protect people’s right to make their own decisions. Our health care services include lifesaving cancer screenings, breast health care, well-woman exams, contraceptive services, sexually transmitted disease testing and treatment, and abortion services.
