E. Craig Heim

President and CEO

Craig was born and raised in the Philadelphia suburbs and has come to the Cape Fear region from Syracuse NY where he lived for 22 years.
Although he loves gardening, flowers, swimming and tennis; his real passion is community building and the idea that to create a better future, nothing is more important than raising strong, resilient young people who have the ability to succeed in school and in life.

This has been his focus in previous United Way positions in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania, Columbus Ohio, Grand Rapids Michigan, Silicon Valley California, Syracuse New York, Charlotte North Carolina and Philadelphia Pennsylvania.

Now that an Ocean is 5 miles from his office, a new passion is the beach.
