Pam Gregory named to lead local United Way

Before being named to the top job, Pam Gregory served as United Way of the Lower Eastern Shore’s Community Impact Director.

The United Way of the Lower Eastern Shore Executive Board of Directors has unanimously selected Pamela Gregory as the new President & Chief Executive Officer for the agency. Gregory, an eight-year veteran of the UWLES, has been an integral part of the agency’s success serving in various capacities including resource development and most recently as Community Impact Director.  

Gregory has served as the Interim President/CEO while the Board performed a nationwide search in which she applied for the permanent position.

With the Board’s endorsement, Gregory will continue to lead the UWLES as they create positive impact toward building stronger communities through critical programs focusing on Education, Financial Stability and Health.  

United Way Board Chair Dana Seiler said the agency wanted a solid leader who could build upon the successes and programs already in place.

“After a nationwide search and interviews, we were fortunate to have the best candidate already on the team. Mrs. Gregory has a proven record of success in building strong relationships through outstanding leadership and collaboration,” Seiler said.

“The search committee and the entire Board are confident she has the experience and skills necessary to lead the UWLES team forward to drive measurable impact and build strategically to ensure the success of our community partners.”

Gregory succeeds 24-year United Way leader Kathleen Momme, who was forced out of her position in the fall.

Now in its 74th year, United Way of the Lower Eastern Shore provides funding and direct services for over 80 critical programs serving Wicomico, Worcester, Somerset and Dorchester counties.
