Loaned Executive Program

One of the most comprehensive professional development programs in Dane County is at United Way!

What is a Loaned Executive?

A Loaned Executive is either sponsored or loaned by a United Way corporate partner. This person is an extension of the United Way team for four months and finishes the program with a fresh, new set of high-demand skills, including business planning, customer relationship management and public speaking.

Who is a Loaned Executive?

A loaned executive is a self-starter with potential for growth, a role model and a highly enthusiastic individual. Successful Loaned Executives are skilled in analyzing diverse challenges, problem solving, project management and teamwork, and have an interest in building a personal and professional network. A bachelor’s degree or equivalent work experience is preferred, as well as the
desire and ambition to grow as a leader.

I can’t thank UW Credit Union enough for the opportunity to give back to our community by being loaned to United Way for this year’s campaign. I have grown my leadership, problem-solving and business planning skills to take back to my employer while building a network of like-minded individuals across the county. The program offered a hands-on approach to grow both personally and professionally. This has been a challenging, rewarding, and life changing experience and I am grateful for the opportunity to make a real impact in people’s lives. I loved my time as a Loaned Executive for United Way!” – Brandon Day, Branch Manager, UW Credit Union, 2018 & 2020 Loaned Executive
