STM is pleased to announce a wonderful addition to our talented team. Chip Morrison has joined STM to facilitate the leadership of not-for-profits in transition. He will act as an interim CEO to assist with recruiting a permanent leader, see important projects through to the next stage, audit internal systems and facilitate changes as required.
He recently retired as President of the Androscoggin County Chamber of Commerce, a position he held since the fall of 1995. For several months last year, Chip was the interim executive director for Maine Make-A-Wish Foundation. Prior to joining the Chamber he was City Manager of Auburn and Commissioner of the state departments of Administration and Labor. He has a bachelor’s degree from Carleton College and a master’s degree in public administration from the University of Michigan. Over the course of his career Chip has won several honors including the State of Maine Public Administrator of the Year, the Ken Curtis Leadership Award from the Maine Development Foundation, the Auburn Citizen of the Year, the Maine Chamber Executive of the Year, and the 2008 Mainebiz nonprofit CEO of the year.
