United Way of the Mid-South President Bryce Haugsdahl announced his retirement Monday after 40 years of service with several United Way chapters. As President of our local United Way he has led staff, nonprofits and local volunteers in a strategic examination of United Way to help it become more effective and efficient in improving lives across the region.
The majority of Haugsdahl’s 40 year career with United Way has been with our Mid-South chapter. Before becoming President four years ago, he was the long-time Senior Vice President of Fundraising and led the work of raising resources to help local nonprofit programs address health and human service needs across our region.
Haugsdahl also recently served as Chairman of the Board for the United Ways of Tennessee organization to improve coordination and cooperation between chapters across the state.
“On behalf of the Board, I extend appreciation for Bryce’s decades of dedicated service to United Way and congratulate him as he embarks on this new journey in his life,” said Shannon Brown, Chairman of the United Way Board of Directors.
Doug Byrnes, Senior Vice President of Finance and Chief Financial Officer of United Way of the Mid-South, will serve as Interim President as a search for a new President begins.
