The Michigan Association of United Ways (MAUW) in Lansing has announced that it has appointed Hassan Hammoud to serve as president and CEO.

Hammoud steps into the role with more than 13 years of leadership experience working at United Way and 2-1-1, most recently as executive director for Michigan 2-1-1.

“Hassan has been a longtime supporter of MAUW’s mission, working diligently with partners across the state to ensure Michigan’s ALICE population is recognized and supported, first as a 2-1-1 team leader and most recently as the executive director of 2-1-1,” says Teresa Kmetz, chair of MAUW’s board. “We’ve seen Hassan’s professionalism, passion, and dedication firsthand over the past decade, and we could not be more excited to continue our work together under the guidance of his expertise and leadership.”

In his new role, Hammoud will be responsible for overseeing the development and execution of strategy, discovering new and innovative pathways for growth, and representing MAUW — and the 35 local United Ways it serves across the state — by promoting positive relationships with its many government, community, and professional partnerships.

“I’m honored to be given the opportunity to lead the charge as we continue to provide Michigan’s vulnerable populations with the resources they need to thrive,” Hammoud says. “Since the beginning of my tenure at Michigan 2-1-1, I’ve been inspired by MAUW’s drive to help those in need and create change on both the community and state levels.

“I’m proud of what our talented and ambitious teams have been able to accomplish together and look forward to continuing to work collaboratively to support those in crisis across Michigan.”

Before joining MAUW, Hammoud held various roles at United Way for Southeastern Michigan, including serving as operations manager and director of community engagement and outreach.

An active member of the community, Hammoud is a board member for several organizations, including the Coalition to Keep Michigan Warm, the University of Detroit Mercy’s School of Social Work, the Michigan Homeless Policy Council, and others.
