SEATTLE — Evergreen Goodwill of Northwest Washington announced today that Daryl Campbell, who has served as president and CEO of the nonprofit organization for the last 10 years, has announced his retirement. His last day will be March 22, 2024. A committee comprising members of the board of directors will oversee the selection process for Evergreen Goodwill next president and CEO.

Under Daryl Campbell’s leadership over the last decade, Evergreen Goodwill continued to advance its mission by providing free workforce development programs to the community, funded primarily through the sale of donated items in 25 retail stores.

“Evergreen Goodwill has an incredibly powerful mission,” Campbell said. “It has been the privilege of my career to lead this organization and witness thousands of our students finding dignity, purpose, financial security and opportunities through our job training and education programs.”

When Campbell became president and CEO in 2014, he set out to enhance program offerings and respond to specific needs in each of the five Western Washington counties Evergreen Goodwill serves. As part of this strategy, he emphasized the development of business sector training and education pathways to help students move beyond entry-level jobs and into sustainable careers.  Recently, the organization introduced two “Digital Equity Buses” — mobile classrooms designed to bring workforce development workshops and support services directly to historically under-resourced rural and tribal communities.

The COVID-19 pandemic brought unprecedented challenges across the organization. Retail stores and job training centers closed for several months, but the need for social services was more urgent than ever. Under Campbell’s leadership, staff came together to help the community cope, recover and rebuild.  Evergreen Goodwill pivoted quickly, launching online training, distributing laptops and hotspots to students and providing support and assistance to those struggling to meet basic needs.

“Daryl helped fortify Evergreen Goodwill through the ebbs and flows of the last decade,” said Tim Myers, chair of the board of directors. “The strength and resiliency he brought to the role of president and CEO allowed Goodwill to prioritize our commitment to serve our students and support our employees in the face of adversity.”

Campbell holds a Juris Doctor degree from Seattle University School of Law. Immediately prior to his role at Evergreen Goodwill, Campbell was vice-president and then interim president of Shoreline Community College from 2008 to 2014.

Within the last year, Evergreen Goodwill celebrated its 100-year anniversary and the grand opening of a new store in Sedro-Woolley.
