Suzanne M. Zutter is starting work this month as new executive director for United Way of Greater Baytown Area & Chambers County (UWGBACC).
Zutter comes to the Baytown area from Nashville, TN, where she worked as director of development for a non-profit organization, PearlPoint Cancer Support.
Prior to Nashville, Zutter worked nearly six years as executive director of United Way of Southwest Wyoming in Rock Springs, WY. She also has management experience with other non-profit organizations, a publicly funded transportation agency, and a public utility company.
“The UWGBACC Board of Directors and the Search Team are delighted that Suzanne Zutter accepted our offer to become the Executive Director of UWGBACC,” said David Rupert Smith, UW board president. “We began our national search in July 2015. It was an exhaustive process that drew about 120 qualified applicants to consider. We felt that the effort was warranted in order to find the right person to take the reins from David Mohlman, who has headed our local United Way and served our community so meritoriously for the last 15 years.”
“I am very excited to be a part of the Baytown and Chambers County communities,” Zutter commented. “I believe in the work of the United Way and our ability to create positive change for the benefit of all. As a community we come together for the greater good whether it is a corporation, small business, government, nonprofit, donor, or volunteer. I look forward to continuing the mission of United Way. United Way starts with U.”
A native of Chippewa Falls, WI, Zutter earned a bachelor’s degree in business and human relations from St. Cloud State University in St. Cloud, MN, as well as a master’s degree in management from Hamline University in St. Paul, MN.
David Mohlman, who has worked the last 15 years as United Way executive director, is remaining at United Way during the first half of January to work with Zutter during the transition period.
