CINCINNATI, Ohio (October 25, 2021) — 

Dear United Way friends,

The past 18 months at United Way of Greater Cincinnati really increased my appreciation of our generous community.

Whether it be our many neighbors who stepped forward to help during COVID or the number of community leaders and dedicated United Way volunteers who helped set our organization on a new strategic direction, I am grateful so many answered the call. 

A new group of leaders recently added their name to my list! Seven new members from diverse and impressive backgrounds were appointed to our Board of Directors:

  • Katie Blackburn - Cincinnati Bengals

  • Brian Griffin - Cincinnati AFL-CIO

  • Rob Herman - Gries Financial Partners

  • Siri Imani - Cincinnati Artist & Musician

  • Mark Mallory - Former Cincinnati Mayor; Mark Mallory & Associates

  • KZ Smith - Corinthian Baptist Church

  • Kristen Wevers - UC Health

I look forward to their guidance as we help all families in Greater Cincinnati achieve economic well-being.

Meanwhile, I am extremely thankful to our outgoing board chair, Steve Shifman, who provided incredible support and guidance during my first year on the job. Thankfully, he remains on our board and, along with incoming board chair Barbara Turner and vice chair Brian Hodgett, will be a valuable resource to me, United Way and our community.

The following board members, however, are retiring from our board:

  • Mary Miller - CEO of JANCOA Janitorial Services
  • Roni Luckenbill - CEO of Girl Scouts of Western Ohio
  • Sean Rugless - President of The Katalyst Group

While I will miss their regular contributions, I thank them for their support and am confident they will stay connected.

We couldn’t do this job without tremendous leadership from all of our board members. They help us navigate daily challenges and advocate for us throughout the community. They are invaluable.
