CEO, Overtown Youth Center, Miami

Annie Neasman, FCLF Board Member

Tina Brown is the Chief Executive Officer of the Overtown Youth Center (OYC), where she is in the trenches daily, fighting to help level the playing field for her students and parents. Due to her lifelong passion of empowering young people, Tina doesn’t take her role lightly or for granted. She believes her work will help change the narrative in the black community.

In 2005, she brought her talents to Alonzo Mourning’s Overtown Youth Center to serve as the Finance Director, where she was responsible for the oversight of a $1.8 million budget as well as managing the Human Resources, Information Technology and Facilities departments. In 2010, Tina became Executive Director of OYC, and then CEO. Under her leadership, OYC has flourished both fiscally and programmatically – with revenue increases of over 200% and service population growth of over 500%. As CEO, Tina oversaw a Capital Campaign to raise $17 million dollars to reconstruct OYC so it can service even more youth and families.

Her commitment to taking care of her community has garnered her many awards including: the Monsignor Walsh Outstanding Human Services Professional Award in 2016 by the United Way; “Leadership Miami” Award by the Greater Miami Chamber of Commerce; Community Award by MDCPS School Board member Dorothy Bendross-Mindingall; and an Honorary MBA from FIU’s School of Business. Tina also serves as co-chairperson of the Overtown Children and Youth Coalition, co-chairperson of the Equity Advocacy Coalition and Board Member of The Commonwealth Institute and Urban Philanthropies. Never hesitant to share her knowledge, Tina is also a respected speaker and panelist.

Armed with a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration and Accounting from Savannah State University; a Master’s Degree in Accounting and almost two decades of experience in the field of accounting and business management for both corporate and non-profit entities; as well as unbridled drive, dedication and passion, Tina is well equipped to impact her community for good. Tina Brown is a daughter of Miami – Historic Overtown to be exact – and the powerhouse leader has dedicated her life to improving the lives of those who live, work and play in the community of her birth.
