United Way report

The report says that Gloria Pace King was the driving force behind her controversial compensation, but also blames the nonprofit's volunteer board for failing to scrutinize the deal. United Family Services CEO Mark Pierman says it's clear from the report that board members and staff missed warning signs: "There should have been some red flags somewhere along the way," says Pierman. "But apparently it was done in a way that there weren't people looking at the whole thing and examining it to make sure it was the right thing for the organization." United Family Services is one of many local nonprofits that rely on funding from the United Way. The report released today accuses King of brushing aside critics to ensure her pay plan's approval by the board. She was fired in September. The report also recommends United Way overhaul its board to add more checks and balances. United Way officials and members of the independent review panel will take questions on the report Tuesday morning at 9 a.m.
