WATERVILLE, Maine (November 20, 2019)— The United Way of Mid-Maine has named Alan Smith as president and CEO, succeeding Elizabeth Barron, who recently joined another local non-profit. He will officially assume the leadership position on November 25th.

Smith has had a successful career bringing his private sector business skills into the nonprofit world. In recent years he led transitions in several nonprofits, including the Center for Wildlife, in Cape Neddick, Maine, which helps rehabilitate injured or orphaned wild animals, and Renascence House in Montgomery, Alabama, a transitional home for men leaving Alabama state prison. Most recently he facilitated the Augusta Food Bank’s relocation into a new state of the art facility.

“Mr. Smith’s proven track record of leading nonprofits to new heights is one of the many reasons we are excited to have him heading the United Way of Mid-Maine” said James Wood, chair of the board of directors.

Smith will be responsible for overseeing and coordinating UWMM’s support of programs of its 22 partner agencies, and for its annual appeal for funds needed for that support.
