Generations United Welcomes New Board Members

Generations United elected two new members to its Board: Amanda Charlsie Cavaleri, founder and CEO of Connect the Ages, and Joseph Cuticelli, head of Seniors for Sodexo North America.

Amanda Cavaleri is a Millennial entrepreneur and global thought leader on a mission to build technology into a tool to bridge generations and foster purpose.

"I am thrilled to contribute a Millennial perspective and a gerontechnology background to the Generations United Board," Cavaleri said.

Her holistic approach and focus on value creation challenges the norm. She brings intergenerational and multidisciplinary innovation to the growing longevity economy in an energetic response to massive demographic, economic, policy, technological and workforce opportunities.

"Intergenerational collaboration has the potential to better our families, our schools, our aging experience, our communities and our world," Cavaleri said.

In 2014, she founded Connect the Ages, an intergenerational storytelling and mentorship program, through which elders teach young people about the values of being in the moment, learning from mistakes and intrinsic rewards while younger people help older adults feel relevant in their community and co-create avenues for continual contribution.

"The timing to bridge the generations is now," Cavaleri said. "I am honored to join Generations United on this journey."

As head of Seniors for Sodexo North America, Joseph Cuticelli is responsible for a business with $720 million in annual revenues that serves more than 400 client locations. He is a member of the North America Regional Leadership Committee for Sodexo, the 18th largest employer in the world and the leaders in delivering integrated facilities management, food service operations and recognition programs in 80 countries.

At Sodexo, he has held positions that include Vice President of Client Relations for Seniors, where he developed and executed a successful long-
term retention strategy and exceeding financial and sales targets. His other positions were Director of Business Development for Education, District Manager for Seniors and Area Generation Management for Seniors.
