United Way chooses new executive director

The United Way of Sheboygan County Board of Directors named Jon Doll Executive Director. “The search process has been rigorous and the Board of Directors agrees that we have found the best fit for our community,” said Janet Carter, head of the search committee and President of the Board of Directors. Jon will start as executive director on July 8th.

Doll received his bachelor’s degree from the University of Washington and has 40 years of experience working as an executive in both the private and non-profit sectors. For the last 13 years, he worked within the United Way system in the United States and abroad. For 10 years he was the Vice President of King County United Way in Seattle where he led fundraising efforts for what became the largest United Way in the world – in terms of dollars raised. During the last two years of his United Way tenure, he founded the United Way of London and laid the groundwork for a new United Way in the United Kingdom.

Doll served on boards for a va- riety of non-profit organizations – including theaters, health and human service agencies, schools and youth groups. He has taught business management courses, conducted workshops and seminars for community colleges in various locations. He prides himself on his interpersonal skills and knack for bringing out the best in people.

He grew up in Sheboygan and graduated from North High School. You may also recognize his song “Touch a Life” that was used in the 2010 and 2011 campaign videos for the Sheboygan and Plymouth Area United Way. Initially Jon’s wife, Kathy, and their two daughters Emily and Becca will remain in the Seattle, Washington area.

Doll’s first tasks, as he becomes reacquainted with the community, will be to meet with 2013 campaign co-chairs Kristin Abell and Dave Bolland, join the United Way staff and Board of Directors as they complete the 2013 Needs Assessment – taking a look at the greatest needs in Sheboygan County and where United Way can make the greatest positive impact in our community, and work closely with the strategic planning committee to map out the organizations goals over the next 3 – 5 years and beyond.
