After 35 years as President and CEO of Goodwill, Michael S. Rowan will be retiring on March 15.

Rowan joined the organization as President and CEO in 1984. During his tenure, he has grown the organization’s operational revenue from $1.6M in 1984 to $57.3M in 2017. He is leaving behind a legacy of strong leadership built on trust, kindness and dedication. He is known for implementing the “clean and friendly” retail store model. That model is still alive today.

Rowan’s passion is the organization’s mission of “providing employment and training opportunities to people with disabilities and other barriers to employment.” It has been his life’s work and he will not rest until he has done everything possible to fulfill this mission.
