United Way of Kent County has announced the appointment of Amy Meade as Executive Director.
She brings a strong set of skills to the fund-raising organization, with a Master’s in Business Administration from Harvard Business School. A resident of Chestertown for 3 years, Meade created and ran her own business, Teknika Kitchens and Baths, Inc which she brought with her to Chestertown from Philadelphia where she lived for 25 years. Meade also has experience in marketing at companies such as Frito-Lay and Novartis and finance at Destination Maternity. She has also had a great deal of experience as a volunteer in the community, including as a Board member of Main Street Chestertown.
