The board of directors of the United Way of Davidson County has announced that Darrell McNeill, president of Facility Logistic Services, will serve as the 2011-2012 United Way campaign chairman.
McNeill has been a member of the United Way of Davidson County Board of Directors for two years, and his company, FLS, is active in United Way campaigns. FLS provides third-party labor for the Kimberly-Clark Mill in Lexington, has 130 employees in the Lexington division and 290 associates overall. The company also works with Kimberly-Clark facilities in Hendersonville and Neenah, Wisc.
The native of Newport News, Va., traveled extensively as a child since he was in a military family. After high school, McNeill moved to Greensboro to attend North Carolina Agriculture and Technical State University where he majored in business management.
After college, he began his career in logistic and distribution at the Sears Logistic Services catalog center in Greensboro. He joined the management team at the Kmart Distribution Center in Greensboro for eight years and in 2000 was recruited with a third-party logistic company as the general manager to perform warehouse labor for Kimberly-Clark in Lexington.
McNeill started his company, Facility Logistic Services, in 2007 and was awarded the contract with Kimberly-Clark.
He has worked with Communities in Schools for Lexington/Davidson County, is an active volunteer with Men and Mentors and is a member of the White Oak Grove Missionary Baptist Church. He is married to Deborah Myers McNeill, and they have two children, Darrell Jr., 21, and Danielle, 17.
“We are extremely grateful that Darrell McNeill will serve as our campaign chair during the 2011-2012 United Way campaign,” said Frank Cagle, BB&T’s senior vice president and area manager for Davidson and Davie counties and chairman of the United Way of Davidson County Board of Directors. “Darrell’s executive business experience will serve us well as we reach out to individuals and companies who want to make a positive impact in our community. Our board is excited Darrell is going to lead our United Way effort during this important campaign.”
Cagle was the campaign chairman for the United Way campaign last year. “Even though we didn’t make our goal, we were extremely pleased that we ended up raising $10,000 more than we raised during the previous campaign to support programs for those in need. Our $2,050,522 goal this year is more than we raised last year, but we know from experience that Davidson County citizens are generous, and care about their neighbors in need.”
Lee Jessup, president of the United Way of Davidson County, said: “We are looking forward to another successful United Way campaign with Darrell McNeill as our chair. He and his company have had a strong relationship with the United Way, and I know he will do an excellent job in this leadership role as we seek dollars that will change people’s lives in Davidson County.”
The United Way of Davidson County 2011-2012 campaign begins Aug. 1 with a Pacesetter Campaign. Last year, the United Way campaign provided partial funding for programs sponsored by 30 human service agencies in the county.
