Indiana United Ways has announced the resignation of President and Chief Executive Officer Maureen Noe. The nonprofit says Noe, who has served in the role for five years, will work with leadership to ensure a smooth transition through July 4.
During her tenure, IUW says Noe led the development of the Vision 2027 Strategic Plan, recruitment and engagement of its board of directors, and worked with United Ways around the state.
“We are grateful for Maureen’s dedication and connection to this organization for the last five years,” United Way executive committee chairperson Pam Ottersbach said. “The IUW Executive Committee will begin working toward identifying a new President and CEO who will adopt this organization’s strategy for success, build upon those successes, and lead IUW forward.”
The nonprofit says Noe leveraged more than $70 million into the United Way’s network to support Hoosiers by providing basic needs, mental health services, and educational services. She also collaborated with United Way Worldwide to refine and relaunch a backroom service that focuses on process improvement and customer service.
“Leaving Indiana United Ways brings mixed emotions and a strong sense of humility. I will forever value the work and friendships I have made along the way and celebrate the accomplishments our teams have and will achieve in the future. The trust and partnership the Board of Directors invested in my leadership is a gift that allowed us to take IUW to new levels. And above all, the exceptional, selfless work that our United Way network leaders to every day is inspirational. I am confident in IUW’s ability to carry out its mission, continuing to grow and transform the communities it serves,” Noe said. “My heart will always belong to Indiana United Ways. Serving this organization over the years has been my passion and my heartbeat.”
IUW says an executive committee is working to fill the position through internal research and networking.
