David and Jim

We are thrilled to welcome David Martin, Partner at ISL Insurance, as our 2015 Campaign Chair.

United Way Peterborough & District CEO Jim Russell made the announcement today saying, “David has been a sought after community leader for many years in Peterborough. He approaches all tasks with a focus and determination which inspires. He was Board Chair when I was hired and I can tell you he sets a standard of leadership that requires the very best in people.”

David’s local community service includes joining the Rotary Club of Peterborough- Kawartha in 2006. He served as Club President in 2013 and has sat on the Board of Directors for several years in various roles.

Outside of Rotary, David is actively involved with many local organizations including raising in excess of $10,000 for Cops for Cancer (yes that was time he shaved his head!), raising more than $35,000 with 6 friends in the Ride to Conquer Cancer as well as Walk A Mile event. If you’re a spin class enthusiast you’re likely aware of David’s grueling spin classes at our local Y!

“Having been involved with the United Way for so many years I’ve seen firsthand the power of the organization and I strongly believe in the new strategic direction,” says Martin, 2015 United Way Campaign Chair. “Chairing the 2015 Campaign is a wonderful opportunity to further my passion for the United Way and I’m humbled by the responsibility of the role and what it means to so many in the community,” Martin added.

“Over the years, David has generously given to this community through United Way as well as many other local organizations. He commands respect, is quick to laugh and is eager to serve,” says Russell. “I am so very proud to call both he and his partner Yvonne, dear friends and so very pleased he would choose to serve our community as this year’s campaign Chair. He is someone who comes to the task with intimate knowledge of United Way, our value to the community, and the passion we have to transform community,” Russell added.
