We write to you, the friends of United Way, to let you know David has resigned his position as president and chief professional officer to pursue new career interests. The board has named Debbie Bresette, UWCA executive vice president, as interim President and CPO.
During David’s tenure, the people of Central Texas have partnered to provide $140 million and thousands of volunteer hours to help meet critical community needs. Hard work by talented people of United Way will help continue this vital mission.
David guided the United Way Capital Area through an ambitious and critical shift in its giving model–to an approach that aims to achieve lasting gains in the lives of all Central Texans–truly a laudable mission.
This era of transition at United Way Capital Area has meant a lot of hard work and has demanded that we all rise to the highest standards of committed and ethical leadership. David’s service to our organization, and to our community, has been what United Way needed through a period of substantial change.
Those changes have been difficult, but change is essential to the continued vitality of every organization.
David’s plans include becoming a partner in Civic Interest, LLC, which is a local collaborative of civic-minded leaders at work on community projects. Projects include continued work toward the same goals that have animated the work at United Way — addressing the region’s widening disparity gap and creating positive change in Central Texas.
Thank you for your continued support and all you have done, and will continue to do, to help others through our United Way Capital Area. Please call Debbie at 512-225-0356 or Anne at 512-249-3419 should you have questions. Together, we will write a new chapter in the United Way Capital Area story of leadership and service.
