Seattle Goodwill Industries Announces New President & CEO Daryl Campbell

Markee Foster, the Chair of the Board of Directors for Seattle Goodwill Industries, is pleased to announce that Daryl Campbell has been named the organization’s President and CEO. Mr. Campbell leaves his post as Interim President and Chief Executive Officer of Shoreline Community College and will join Seattle Goodwill on August 18. Campbell replaces Ken Colling, who retired at the end of June 2014 after serving Goodwill for more than ten years.

Under Mr. Campbell’s leadership during his six year tenure as Vice-President and then Interim President, Shoreline Community College drove a strategic planning process resulting in increased targeted enrollment, higher quality programs, and a more stable financial profile. Campbell has been very active in the broader community, growing key partnerships in the college’s popular automotive maintenance program and working proactively to develop partnerships with educational institutions in Asia.

Foster notes that Campbell’s ability to forge strategic collaborations and his extensive background in education and finance were key factors in the CEO selection process. “Daryl is an accomplished administrative executive who has served in multiple leadership roles at both educational and business organizations. He has developed significant expertise in workforce related issues and proven his ability to partner effectively across multiple stakeholder groups to drive innovative new programs,” said Foster. “He brings the right mix of skills, experience and creativity to align with Goodwill’s goals, for both our retail operations and our free job training and education programs."

Mr. Campbell received his undergraduate degree from University of Vermont, an M.B.A. from University of Phoenix, and holds a J.D. degree from Seattle University School of Law. He has long been active in the broader community and currently serves on the Board of Project Education Kenya and as a member of the Puget Sound Coalition for College and Career Readiness.

Seattle Goodwill is one of the region’s largest non-profit organizations and has been providing programs and services to the North Puget Sound community since 1923. It employs over 1,950 people to operate its 24 retail stores and 10 Job Training and Education Centers. For more information, please contact Katherine Boury at (206) 535 5315 or go to or
