Fine, who assumed leadership of United Way in 2000 after a successful career in finance, is credited for transforming a broad based organization which funded a wide range of social and human service issues into a metrics driven funder focused on creating a community where people have homes, students graduate and families are financially stable.

"The hallmark of Jon's tenure has been a laser focus on accountability and results," said United Way Board Chair Brian McAndrews. "You see it in the success of the programs that United Way administers, like Jobs Connect, which connected 2,200 people experiencing homelessness to jobs last year, or the Parent-Child Home Program that helps 1,300 families annually make sure their kids are ready to learn when they enter Kindergarten." McAndrews, former Pandora and aQuantive CEO and digital media veteran, credits Fine with building an organization that creates effective programs and leverages relationships and government funding to truly have a long term impact on our region.

"I will forever treasure the opportunity I have had to partner with such outstanding volunteers, donors, staff, agencies and businesses to do such interesting and meaningful work," said Jon Fine. "Over the years we have helped an enormous number of people in need, and I'm proud of our ability to bring the resources when and where they are needed most."

Fine's transformation of United Way of King County goes beyond effective programs. With traditional charity giving models such as workplace changing, the Seattle United Way is focused on engaging individual donor groups that care about tackling tough issues, like Emerging Leaders, a group of more than 9,000 young professionals in their 20's and 30's.

Jon Fine will leave United Way of King County with a solid footing for the future, a strong staff and a road map for the national United Way system to adapt to the changing fundraising landscape.
