Rachel Guerin, a veteran of the nonprofit sector, has been named executive director of the United Way of Northeast Arkansas.

Guerin has years of experience in development, volunteer management and strategic planning. She was previously the associate director of planned giving for the Arkansas/Oklahoma Division of The Salvation Army. Before then, she was the executive director of market development for March of Dimes.

Guerin has also volunteered with the Downtown Jonesboro Alliance, St. Bernards NICU, the Foodbank of Northeast Arkansas and Jonesboro Young Professionals Network.

“Growing up in Jonesboro and spending the bulk of my career in the nonprofit sector, I have had the privilege of watching the United Way of Northeast Arkansas change lives.” Guerin said in a news release. “Now, I have the opportunity to join them. It is a true honor to be able to work with this caliber of volunteers and staff and I am looking forward to what we can achieve together.”

Guerin succeeds Nanette Heard, who had led the group since 2010. 

“Rachel’s proven track record in nonprofit leadership is just what we need,” United Way Board President Michael Nunnally. “The board is confident she’s the right person to oversee the efforts of the United Way in its next chapter.”

United Way of Northeast Arkansas serves Clay, Craighead, Cross, Greene, Jackson, Lawrence, Poinsett, Randolph and Mississippi counties.
