WILLMAR—There will be a change in leadership at the United Way of West Central Minnesota.

It was announced Wednesday that James Miller, who has been executive director of the five-county United Way chapter for six years, has resigned.

His last day at the agency is Dec. 31.

In a news release, Brad Hanson, president of the board of directors for the United Way of West Central Minnesota, said Miller has “played a critical role in the development and success of the organization, and while we will miss him and his exemplary leadership, we wish James the best of luck in his next adventure.”

Hanson praised Miller for the “dedication, passion, enthusiasm and motivation he has given United Way of West Central Minnesota.”

Over the next few weeks, the agency will conduct a search to find the new executive director.

During the transition period, Hanson said the board will find the best individual to lead, while still maintaining a “stable and effective organization.”

The United Way of West Central Minnesota serves all of Kandiyohi County, and portions of Chippewa, Meeker, Renville and Swift counties.
