John Heald has been living on the Midcoast of Maine for the last six years. For thirty five years, he had a successful career managing international paper, packaging and printing companies. Since his retirement, he has been involved with committee work on several for-profit boards, including Cobscook Bay Company, as well as non-profit boards like the CCLC, United Cerebral Palsy, Preble Street and Common Good Ventures. John is also involved in his son’s energy efficiency investment business.
John became involved in the CCLC by a recommendation from Janet Taylor of the C.F. Adams Charitable Trust three years ago, who suggested he visit our campus. John felt like he had come home to the work he had been involved in years ago with his wife as a VISTA volunteer. He recognized the same commitment to community health and development and the near identical challenges and opportunities.
When not engaged in board duties, John likes to hike and walk and spend time with his grandson.
