So, who is Demaune?
On April 16, 2018 the Board of Directors for Family League of Baltimore announced the appointment of Demaune A. Millard as its 5th President & CEO for the 27-year-old nonprofit organization. Since 1991, Family League has mobilized resources, empowered communities while building the capacity of organizations to provide children and families with high-quality programs and services that help them reach their full potential.
Millard assumed the role of Interim CEO in July 2017 after serving over 2 years as Chief Operating Officer. In his duties Millard is responsible for leading and managing all aspects of the agency’s
$26 million operations. Demaune has been a trusted ambassador, fostering and developing deep relationships across Baltimore, and nationally, with key funders, partners, advocates and political entities. Millard was the driving force in completing the organization’s first citywide Community Needs Assessment highlighting “the state of the child” in Baltimore.
Demaune’ s professional career spans over 15 years influencing policy and operations management at the local, state and federal levels. These tenures include service as Mayor’s Office Chief of Staff, managing day-to-day operations and leading municipal government wide initiatives. Demaune also served as the city’s chief lobbyist overseeing legislative operations responsible in securing critical federal and state funding.
Demaune started his career in the mailroom of U.S. Senator Barbara A. Mikulski’s Capitol Hill office, and worked his way onto her legislative staff upon graduation from Howard University with a business degree in Finance.
As a member of the Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc., Demaune served as chairman of the annual scholarship gala and started a male mentorship program at Matthew Henson Elementary School. Omega Psi Phi’s Pi Omega Chapter recognized him with the National Superior Service (2007) and Citizen of the Year (2008) awards, respectively. Most recently Baltimore SmartCEO Magazine featured Millard in their 2016 Executive Management Awards edition as a Leadership All Star for his work at Family League.
A proud Baltimore native, Demaune and his wife Terrylynn reside in the city with their daughter Asa.
