From Chatham Trades

Chatham Trades Executive Director Shawn Poe is pleased to announce Dina Reynolds as the Director of Development and Communications.

“Chatham Trades is very fortunate to have been able to acquire someone with Dina’s nonprofit experience and knowledge of the county,” said Poe.

Chatham Trades has been providing employment and training opportunities for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities for 40 years.

Reynolds has called Chatham County home for more than 25 years. A graduate of UNC-Chapel Hill, she holds a B.A in Journalism and Marketing, as well as a Certificate in Nonprofit Management from Duke’s Continuing Education program. She has worked in nonprofit fundraising and administration for 23 years.

The first eight of her career were spent as the Director of Development for the Chatham County Council on Aging and the last 15 as Executive Director of the United Way of Chatham County. Under her leadership, more than eight million dollars was raised and allocated to Chatham’s human service nonprofits, benefitting residents with the most critical needs. In addition to her resource development success, Reynolds has served on many county advisory committees, is a past Education Foundation Board Member and a past President of the Siler City Rotary Club.

“I’m passionate about the welfare of this community and its residents, Reynolds said. “For more than 25 years I’ve held close to my heart the needs of the most vulnerable members of our community. I’m excited to direct my energies and experience to this vital organization.”

“While many leaders in Chatham County know Reynolds very well, she’s looking forward to extending that relationship to involve more residents and more industry with Chatham Trades,” commented Poe.
