Capital Area United Way (CAUW) held its annual meeting on July 28 to announce new board members and officers, as well as a new CEO. Stephen Toups, executive vice president of Turner Industries, was named the 2016-2017 board chair. Prior to assuming his role as board chair, Stephen served as interim co-CEO along with past board chair, Ralph Bender. Stephen has also served as a past Campaign Chairman and as Chair Elect.
“I am excited and honored to have been given the opportunity to serve our community. United Way has always been an integral part of my life, both personally and professionally. My Father, Roland Toups, held this very role when I was young and I am proud to follow in his footsteps. Additionally, United Way has always been Turner Industries’ major philanthropic focus because United Way programs serve the largest number of people in the most places where our employees live and work. New CAUW CEO, George Bell, has hit the ground running and I can’t wait to see where he takes this organization.”
