Five Top Civic and Business Leaders to Support Taylor as Vice-Chairs
The United Way of Greater Cincinnati today announced that David Taylor, P&G’s Chairman and CEO, will be Chair of United Way’s 2020 Community Fundraising Campaign.
In taking on this role, Taylor cited P&G’s longstanding support of United Way, it’s employee commitment to giving and volunteering and the impact of United Way in improving the lives of those most vulnerable in Greater Cincinnati.
“From the beginning of my career at P&G working in our plants, it was clear to me the incredible importance, as a company, of being a good citizen in the communities where we operate,” said Taylor. “It is an honor to be able to help continue this commitment by serving as the United Way’s 2020 Campaign Chair.”
United Way is in the midst of its 2019 campaign. 2019 Campaign Chair and First Financial Bank CEO Archie Brown said this year’s effort is progressing well and cited P&G as an example of numerous companies that are coming in above projections.
“This appointment sends a signal for this year’s campaign, as well as next, that Greater Cincinnati is firmly behind United Way’s efforts and is coming together as a region to break the cycle of poverty,” said Brown.
Taylor and United Way also named five Vice-Chairs who will join him in advancing next year’s campaign.
- Cynthia Booth, Owner, COBCO Enterprises, LLC
- Derrick Braziel, Co-Founder and Managing Partner, MORTAR Cincinnati
- Jill Meyer, President & CEO, Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber
- Jeff Schomburger, Former Global Sales Officer, P&G
- George Vincent, Managing Partner and Chairman, Dinsmore
Taylor cited the breadth and depth of talent of the group. “This is one of the strongest fundraising teams ever assembled in Greater Cincinnati,” he said.
In their leadership roles at the sixth largest United Way in the country, Taylor and team will engage with volunteers and United Way staff in working with thousands of corporate and community partners. The local campaign annually raises funds that help the United Way unite communities to change lives by investing in programs that sustain the health, education and financial stability of every person in our community.
“While looking ahead is exciting, job number one is responding to the families who need our help right now to get quality education for their kids, jobs that pay the bills and healthcare that allows them to thrive. Completing a successful 2019 campaign will make that possible,” Taylor concluded.
