Smith most recently worked for the Augusta Food Bank, helping it relocate into a new state-of-the-art facility. His experience also includes leading transitions for nonprofits such as the Center for Wildlife, in Cape Neddick, and Renascence House in Montgomery, Ala., a transitional home for men leaving the state prison.

“Mr. Smith’s proven track record of leading nonprofits to new heights is one of the many reasons we are excited to have him heading the United Way of Mid-Maine,” said James Wood, chair of the UWMM board of directors.

Among his duties, Smith will be responsible for overseeing the group’s work with its 22 partner agencies, and for its annual fundraising appeal.

United Way of Mid-Maine, headquartered in Waterville, works to improve the health, education and financial stability of people in Somerset, northern Kennebec and western Waldo counties.

Barron stepped down in early October to become director of development at the Maine Children’s Home for Little Wanderers in Waterville.
