Collins Center's president agrees to step down

After facing an involuntary dismissal by the Collins Center board of trustees, Rod Petrey signed a separation agreement Friday and was immediately replaced as the think tank's president by former Miami-Dade County Manager Merrett Stierheim.

The board will continue with its plan to meet Aug. 11 to ratify Petrey's resignation and formalize the appointment of Stierheim, the Miami Herald reported.

In a letter sent to all Collins Center trustees and staff members Friday, chairman Parker Thomson said that Stierheim will serve as interim president and chief executive for three to six months while the board conducts a search for a replacement and that the board has "asked a team of auditors to review the center's finances."
