United Way of Central Maryland has named two local executives to co-chair its 2019 fundraising campaign.

Alicia Wilson, vice president for economic development at Johns Hopkins, and Trif Alatzas, publisher and editor-in-chief of Baltimore Sun Media have been tasked with meeting the nonprofit’s $20 million goal. The funds will be used to support United Way’s education, financial and health programs designed to help low-income families reach self-sufficiency.

Wilson and Alatzas were chosen for their history as lifelong residents of Baltimore, for their work as advocates and leaders and for their engagement in the community.

Past campaign chairs include Sheela Murthy, of the Murthy Law Firm; Terry Neimeyer, CEO of KCI Technologies; Andrew Bertamini, the former Wells Fargo market president for Maryland; Baltimore Gas and Electric Co. CEO Calvin Butler; and Greater Baltimore Committee CEO Donald C. Fry.
