Open Sky Community Services Celebrates EVP of Organizational Development and Diversity

Michael Seibold earns first “Zoom-Key” from Mayor Petty

Open Sky Community Services is celebrating the career and retirement of Michael Seibold, Executive Vice President of Organizational Development and Diversity. On May 29, Seibold received a key to the City of Worcester in recognition of his 40 years of dedicated service to organizations supporting individuals with disabilities. Seibold, who had held the position of Director of Community Services with Alternatives Unlimited, Inc., joined Open Sky in 2018 when Alternatives affiliated with The Bridge of Central Massachusetts as Open Sky Community Services.

Worcester Mayor Joseph Petty presented Michael with the key for his 40 years of work to provide people with developmental disabilities or mental health challenges the support and opportunities they need to lead full and successful lives in the community. Mayor Petty noted that the presentation marked his first “Zoom Key” – digitally presented on the Zoom video conferencing platform.

“We are fortunate to have had the opportunity to work alongside Michael,” said Ken Bates, President and CEO of Open Sky Community Services. “His thoughtful approach, breadth of knowledge and teaching style has left a lasting legacy for the entire central Massachusetts community.”

During Seibold’s tenure, he oversaw years of extraordinary service growth. Of particular note is Michael’s work to develop an agency-wide mentoring program to assist staff members in their career development.
