St. Louis, Mo. — Julie Zuick, St. Louis, is following in her grandfather’s footsteps in serving the MERS/Goodwill Board of Directors.
Zuick, who was elected to serve on the 2019 Board of Directors, recently learned that her grandfather, Philip Isserman, acted as MERS Chairman of the Board of Directors from the late 1960s to the early 1970s.
“As a longtime supporter of Goodwill, I’m proud to serve alongside a phenomenal group of people as we help the organization continue to grow and serve the community,” Zuick said.
MERS Goodwill changes lives through the power of work. Its vision is a community where each individual has the opportunity to learn, work, and achieve their greatest potential. Annually serving more than 40,000 individuals, the non-profit agency operates in 75 locations serving 89 counties in the bi-state area. Revenues from 42 Goodwill stores assist with funding MERS Goodwill job training and employment services.
“I’m glad Julie has joined our board,” said David Kutchback, President and CEO of MERS Goodwill. “Her high energy and strong experience will be an asset to the organization.”
As a board member, Zuick plans to use her background in marketing, strategic planning and retail to help fulfill the mission of MERS Missouri Goodwill, “Changing lives through the power of work.” MERS Missouri Goodwill provides a variety of programs and services to help support this mission.
“In both my personal and professional life, I am passionate about employing people to the top of their ability,” Zuick said. “As an executive recruiter, I help people reach their potential daily and our clients recruit the best talent.”
