Darryl Willoughby and Margaret Pacaud are retiring from Community Futures at the end of this month, taking 47 years of combined experience with the organization with them.
Willoughby has been the general manager of Community Managers for 26 years and Pacaud has spent 21 years as the executive assistant.
Kevin Dorrius, who was been with Community Futures since 1997 as the business analyst, will take over as general manager, working with business clients, overseeing the activity and administration associated with the loan funds and the self-employment program, and coordinating staff and volunteers working on various projects.
Cindy Maloney, who has worked as the self-employment coordinator since November, will assume Dorrius’ former role in addition to her current position. As business analyst, she will work with clients who are applying for loans, starting a new business or expanding an existing one.
Brooke Burke has been hired to replace Pacaud as the executive assistant, providing administrative services to the general manager, the economic development commission and the board of directors.
