The United Way of Richland County is searching for a new leader.

Executive Director Bob Maxey has announced his resignation from the agency. He'll leave at the end of March.

Maxey has led the local United Way since 2011.  He's helped lead the agency through three successful annual campaigns, raising nearly 4.9 million dollars.  Meantime, United Way board members are working with him to ensure a smooth transition while seeking a new executive director.

Maxey began his career with the Ohio State Highway Patrol in 1979, and advanced through the ranks to become District Commander.  He retired from the patrol in 2006, then began a second career in the non-profit world as Executive Director of the American Red Cross chapter in Galion.  He took over the Richland County Red Cross chapter in 2009.  And he was named Executive Director of the United Way of Richland County in 2011.

"Bob has made a tremendous difference for the organization and our community," said Dan DeVille, United Way Board Chairman and Area Manager for FirstEnergy.  He goes on to say "He reached every goal set by the board, improved outreach and engagement with the community, deepened our partnerships with local labor, and was a dedicated champion for our partner agencies.  United Way will surely feel the loss of his steady leadership."

The United Way of Richland County funds 63 programs within 25 local, non-profit agencies.  These programs focus on four community impact areas: Health services, family services, emergency services and youth development.
