Words From My Colleagues & Clients
Dave had remarkable success in leading a vital and complex charitable institution over two decades. I know him well and have complete trust in him. He is a man of courage and compassion. He has extraordinary knowledge and experience in navigating the public/private spectrum. His talent for inspiring businesses and individuals to create or grow programs and initiatives that work effectively on behalf of others has been consistently demonstrated throughout his career as a true leader in our community.
Since meeting Dave in 2003, I have consistently sought his insight on a wide variety of issues. Dave is a strategic thinker who knows the right questions to ask to ensure that the issues are fully explored and the right conclusion can be reached.
I’ve had the pleasure of working with Dave as an Executive Vice President of a major corporation and as a Board President of Racine United Way. In the over 25 years I’ve known Dave, I’ve always had tremendous respect for his innovative and strategic thinking, his ability to bring diverse groups together to collaborate for the betterment of the community, and his respectful and genuine approach to others. Dave’s trustworthiness and professionalism have made him a very valuable partner with business in the community.
Dave Maurer is one of the most clear-thinking, strategic and innovative leaders that I had the pleasure of working with during my 30+ years serving as a philanthropic officer for a major corporation. Dave’s personal engagement, commitment and energy was at the forefront in every project we worked on together.
In my 15+ years working with Dave, he has helped me develop the strategic skills and tools necessary to show the Racine community, the Racine Family YMCA is more than a gym. Dave helped me develop what was a $150,000 youth department reaching only 50 kids to a $500,000 Community Development department reaching over a 1000 people.”
I’ve known Dave Maurer for nearly two decades. When I was teenager, he took time to know me as an individual, acknowledged the importance of my voice in the community, and encouraged me to use it. As I began my career with United Way, Dave served as a mentor, friend and colleague. Dave always takes time to listen and consider multiple perspectives before making a decision. The impact that he has had in the community can be seen in all corners of Racine County.
I have known Dave Maurer for nearly ten years and he is someone I trust very much. He knows how to thoroughly analyze non-profits and, just as important, how to size up what is going on in the community. His life has been dedicated to making things better for many of the people I try to help with my time and contributions. Dave treats everyone with respect and listens to all view points before he makes any recommendations to me and his other clients.
