Andy Stofleth’s path has been winding like a river, but one thing has remained constant – the current keeps pulling him toward a career in service.
Stofleth (M.S. IMC, 2017) is currently the executive director of SBP Bahamas and was recently recognized by Bahamian Prime Minister Hubert Minnis for contributions to retrofit the Rand Memorial Hospital and four clinics across the Bahamas with water purification systems following Hurricane Dorian. Stofleth joined SBP, a long-term disaster resilience and recovery nonprofit, in 2018 as the Director of Communications before transitioning to his current role in 2020. Stofleth and his team established a public-private partnership with the Bahamas Public Hospitals Authority, CDC Foundation and Water Mission to scope, design and build each system to not only produce enough clean water for each hospital and clinic, but the surrounding community in future emergencies. For the last 18 months, Stofleth and partners have invested their time, resources and passions to complete this long-term recovery program.
