HAGERSTOWN - Dan Greenwald spent his first day on the job Wednesday as many new hires do: "Trying to jump in headfirst without being too overwhelmed," he said.
Greenwald is the new executive director of the United Way of Washington County. He replaces Dale Bannon, who left the post at the end of June to become director of system development for Washington County Public Schools.
A former national account manager for Chicago-based Chas. Levy Circulating Co., Greenwald joins the United Way just in time for this year's United Way campaign kickoff, scheduled for Aug. 31 at Municipal Stadium during the Hagerstown Suns game against the Lakewood Blueclaws.
That's a big assignment to dive into, but Greenwald said he's "really looking forward" to the job, adding that he has "a lot of energy and a lot of enthusiasm" to offer.
