The Pikes Peak United Way has announced its new CEO.
Jason Wood was selected after a four-month nationwide search to succeed current CEO JD Dallinger, who will retire in June. The Pikes Peak United Way (PPUW) says that Wood is working closely with Dallinger, and will take the reins in July.
Wood comes to Colorado Springs from Kansas City, where he was the vice president of community engagement with the United Way of Greater Kansas City. Among Wood's accomplishments, PPUW says he was selected as one of 24 United Way Global Fellows out of more than 1,800 United Ways across the globe.
Wood brings to PPUW a decade of experience in non-profit organizations, and 13 years of management experience. He got his bachelor's degree in non-profit management from Rockhurst University.
