Cindy Aubrey has been named CEO of the Pikes Peak United Way. The former KOAA-TV news director was hired as communications manager by then-Mayor Steve Bach in 2011. She left in early 2015 to take a post with the United Way as senior vice president of marketing. She was promoted to chief operations officer and filled in as interim CEO after the abrupt departure in February of Jason Wood. Hired in 2013, Wood had seen his pay increase by 26 percent, to $128,182, in his last year on the job.
Aubrey didn't respond to emails and a phone call seeking information, including United Way's fundraising goal this year. The agency's total revenue fell 18 percent from 2013 to 2015 before recovering half of that loss in the fiscal year ending June 30, 2016.
