As your new Executive Director, I am thrilled to join this dynamic family and excited about the coming year. New projects and new people are on our radar. There’s a lot to do.
Steve Jobs said that if you do something and it turns out pretty good, you should go do something else wonderful but not dwell on it too long, just figure out what’s next. I think this sums up Mobile United. Together we do wonderful things but are never content to rest on our laurels and instead move on to what’s next for the betterment of Mobile.
Every year, we identify, develop and engage new leaders through Leadership Mobile, Connect Mobile and Youth Leadership Mobile. These individuals come together to do wonderful things for Mobile through their projects, many of which have taken on a life of their own and are engaged in what’s next, such as Youth Leadership Mobile (Class of 1995) and the Downtown Parks Conservancy (2015).
Our standing committees do many wonderful things and work in partnership with the community to figure out what’s next in their efforts to improve our quality of life. Results of their work include, but are definitely not limited to, Community Conversations on Race, the Crepe Myrtle Trail Ride, Engaging the Next Generation and Mobile Bay Green Drinks.

Thank you for your interest and involvement. Because of you, Mobile United continues to be our community’s recognized problem-solver. Next time you’re downtown, stop in the office and say hello!
I look forward to working with you,
