But he won't be leaving his position until June 30, 2014 so he can help train the incoming director, according to a story in The Journal Times. Maurer has been with the organization for 23 years.
Maurer told the JT: "I’ve been here so long that we really wanted to have an overlap with a new leader and myself. If the person comes from outside the community, this gives me time to introduce them to people before I retire.”
Maurer accomplished much during his time as president. According to the JT article, some of Maurer's biggest successes were: the merger of the Racine Area United Way with the Burlington United Fund to become one county organization, getting the Homeless Assistance Leadership Organization (HALO) shelter off the ground, and work with the Advancing Family Assets Initiative.
Executive search company Spano Pratt is helping find Maurer's replacement. The candidate profile for the new CEO of United Way of Racine County says the group is looking for someone who is mission focused, relationship oriented, collaborative, results-driven and visionary.
