DALLAS, Jan. 17, 2012 /PRNewswire/ – United Way of Metropolitan Dallas has hired Stacey Paddock Malcolmson as the agency’s new Senior Vice President and Chief Development Officer (CDO).

Stacey is an exceptional communicator and an authentic relationship-builder who has already developed an impeccable reputation for excellence locally.”
Malcolmson comes to United Way from Southern Methodist University in Dallas where she served as Executive Director of Alumni Giving and Relations for the past six years. Through her work on the Second Century Campaign at SMU, she led a transformation of the Alumni Giving and Relations Program, building a new and high performing culture of alumni programming and effective alumni solicitations. Her efforts resulted in explosive growth in alumni giving overall and dramatic increases in alumni giving participation. Malcolmson replaces Rana Smith who served as United Way’s Chief Development Officer for more than 8 years. Smith left United Way in June to lead development at Best Friends Animal Society, a national animal welfare organization based in Utah.
“Stacey is the perfect addition to United Way’s team- a sophisticated, strategic thinker and a collaborative leader who can form lasting connections,” says United Way Board Chair Debbie Taylor, Regional Director – Citi Community Development. “We’re very proud to have her lead United Way’s development efforts during these exciting years ahead.”
