They’re looking for a new Executive Director for the United Way of Cowlitz County, as Bob Johnson takes a position with the St. John Medical Center Foundation Team. Johnson has been with the local United Way for 15 years, and he says that this was a great opportunity, looking at some new horizons for his work. Johnson says that he currently has the second-longest tenure in Washington state for United Way directors, in a situation where the positions usually turn over every five to eight years. Johnson says that this will be “something different to do,” and the move will also help to bring some fresh blood into the United Way. He says that he’s moving onto a great team, and is looking forward to being involved with the focused efforts of the Foundation. Advertisments are now being posted for the position now held by Johnson, which will be open until September 24th. Johnson says that he’ll be starting his new position on September 27th, and he hopes that they can have a new Executive Director chosen by then.
