Named President/Chief Executive Officer
United Way of the Northern Shenandoah Valley
The United Way of the Northern Shenandoah Valley has named Nadine Pottinga its new President/Chief Executive Officer effective December 31, 2014. Pottinga will succeed Joe Shtulman who will retire on January 9, 2015. Shtulman has served as the President/Chief Executive Officer of the United Way of the Northern Shenandoah Valley for the past 14 years.
David Sovine, the Chairman of the United Way’s Board of Directors, says, "Mrs. Pottinga will be an excellent leader for the local United Way. She has a great deal of experience leading non-profit organizations and successfully raising funds by building loyalty and long-term relationships with donors. As a resident of Clarke County, she also is very familiar with the region served by the United Way of the Northern Shenandoah Valley and the outstanding work of the organizations supported through the United Way."
Pottinga says, "I’m very excited about the opportunity to utilize my skills and professional experiences to serve the community that I love. I hope to combine a fresh perspective with the already firm foundation of the United Way of the Northern Shenandoah Valley in order to engage more volunteers and raise more funds so that we can help provide our member agencies and other non-profit organizations with the resources they need to assist those in need throughout the region."
Since February 2013, Pottinga has served as the Director of Development for the Washington Redskins Charitable Foundation. Her responsibilities include providing strategic planning, project planning and management support under the direction of the Foundation’s leadership team. During Pottinga’s tenure, contributions to the Foundation have grown by more than $1 million.
From July 2009 through February 2013, Pottinga worked for the Muscular Dystrophy Association. She initially served as the Fundraising Coordinator before being promoted to Executive Director in May 2011. Pottinga says, "It was with the Muscular Dystrophy Association that I had the opportunity to manage regional operations of the organization and be responsible for the effective leadership, management and development of all regional staff. I provided direction and leadership toward the successful achievement of the MDA’s philosophy, mission, strategy, annual objectives and budget. During my tenure, I successfully led efforts to create a strategic plan that identified, cultivated and solicited donors and corporate partners to achieve our annual $2 million budget."
Pottinga has also worked as a Spring Break Program Specialist with the Girl Scout Council of the Nation’s Capital (January 2008-July 2009) and as the Area Director for Youth Works in Minneapolis, Minnesota (May 2004-December 2007). She has a bachelor’s degree in Education from Bethel University in Saint Paul, Minnesota, as well as a master’s degree in non-profit management from Hamline University in Saint Paul, Minnesota.
