Unity World Headquarters Leadership Changes

December 17, 2015

Based on Unity World Headquarters' strategic goals, the Board of Directors has modified the search for President and Chief Executive Officer by creating separate positions. The Chief Executive Officer will serve as the spiritual leader of the organization, creating a stronger presence for Unity in the public arena, working with donors and identifying strategic partners. The President/Chief Operating Officer position will be responsible for operational management.

We are pleased to announce that Guy Swanson, UWH's Chief Financial Officer/Chief Operating Officer has been named to fill the newly created position of President/Chief Operating Officer effective January 1, 2016. As a result of Guy’s new appointment, Charlotte Shelton will, over the course of the next few months, shift responsibility for Silent Unity, Hospitality, Human Resources, and Awaken Whole Life Center to Guy. Until her retirement in early July, Charlotte Shelton will serve as CEO and work to ensure a smooth transition to the new CEO.

The revised job description for CEO has been posted at unity.org and qualified applicants are invited to apply. The goal is to fill the position on or before the April 30, 2016, fiscal year-end.
