New Executive Director joins LINCS

The Long Island Network of Community Services, Inc., is happy to announce its new Executive Director, Peter W. Solaski.

Mr. Solaski joins us from SPD Control Systems Corp, based in Stony Brook, NY, where he was the Chief Technology Officer for the past 10 years. SPD is an engineering firm focused on intelligent electronics for energy efficiency. Previously Peter served as the Vice President of Fixed Income Databases, managing a technical development team of 120, for Thomson Reuters, based in both Hauppauge, NY and Stamford, CT.

Mr. Solaski holds a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science and a Master’s in Technological Systems Management from Stony Brook University. The board believes Peter’s unique technical perspective will help further LINCSs’ mission to prevent, monitor and lessen the effects of bias crimes, hate related harassment and discrimination. Retired CEO, Dr. Gail Barouh, said “The evolving nature of the Internet and social media have created powerful tools which have unfortunately led to new ways for bullying, discrimination, and hate to foster. Peter will bring new perspective on these issues.”
