The MDJ reports that Allegood wasn't initially among the 100 plus job applicants, but was approached by CCF's Board of Directors. His appointment was approved by the directors on Wednesday. The board also decided to move the organization's offices to the Cobb Chamber of Commerce building off Windy Hill Road from its current location on North Park Place.
The non-profit organization was founded in 1993, with the mission to promote the importance of effective philanthropy in Cobb County. It oversees 41 family and small-group foundations, and the executive director is the organization’s only paid employee.
Allegood will be taking over starting March 1 from Sue Wootton, who's moving out of state after having led the foundation for 11 years, according to the MDJ.
