Hartford youth service nonprofit Our Piece of the Pie (OPP) has named Hartford public schools leader Enid Mercedes Rey as CEO, following a national search.

Rey, who replaces Bob Rath, starts in her new position Aug. 15. Rath is retiring after 23 years in the job.

Rey is known both locally and nationally for her work in the fields of youth development, education, and civic leadership.

Most recently, since 2011, Rey led Hartford’s public schools School Choice Office. Prior to that, she served as director of Hartford’s Office for Youth Services. She also was vice president at the Village for Families and Children, and program officer at the Hartford Foundation for Public Giving, where she helped found the first Latino Endowment Fund.

Board Chairman Jordan Coe said Rey is the right person to lead the nonprofit.

“Enid has a wealth of youth development, education and nonprofit experience and a passionate commitment to our community and our youth,” she said.

The nonprofit is dedicated to helping 14 to 24 year-old urban youth become economically independent adults in central and eastern Connecticut.
