Yeiser named to lead Foothills United Way
Yeiser started the job Monday, April 8, replacing Barbara Pingrey, who stepped down in March after leading the nonprofit organization for the past 15 years. She joined it in 1998 when it was called Boulder County United Way.
Yeiser has 24 years of experience in nonprofit leadership and resource development. He previously worked with United Way of San Antonio and Bexar County in Texas, and has held key positions advancing the United Way mission throughout the United States and serving as interim senior vice president of resource development for United Way Worldwide.
“The Foothills United Way’s board of directors conducted a national search. Doug Yeiser brings vast experience with United Way programs throughout the United States to benefit Boulder and Broomfield counties,” said Jon Kottke, board chairman.
“I am looking forward to building upon Foothills United Way’s partnership with our community,” Yeiser said. “Foothills United Way offers our neighbors a better opportunity to succeed. We want to improve people’s lives.”
Yeiser received a bachelor’s degree from Baylor University, completed the University of Michigan Executive Leadership Program and has participated in the United Way Academy of Voluntarism.
