Goodwill names mayor’s ex-chief as COO

Alexander Sanchez, former chief of staff for Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, has been named chief operations officer for Goodwill Industries International, based in Rockville. Sanchez served as secretary of Maryland’s Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation before joining the mayor’s office. Sanchez was replaced as chief of staff by Kaliope Parthemos in May, a decision referred to as a “mutual agreement that it was time to go in a different direction,” by a spokesman for Rawlings-Blake. Sanchez also has been senior vice president for community impact leadership at United Way Worldwide, president and CEO of the United Neighborhood Centers of America and executive director for the Hispanic National Bar Association & Foundation.
