The Tri-Cities Area Division of United Way of Greater St. Louis has named Jeff Kohler, general manager of three Weber car and truck dealerships in Granite City, as its 2020 campaign chair.
This will be Kohler’s second year in the position.
“I am excited to once again stand united with my community in supporting United Way in this role,” said Kohler. “By providing essential funding to a safety net of nonprofits on the front lines of helping people, United Way is helping local families and our entire community sustain and rebuild for a better future.”
A Granite City native and now a resident of Troy, Ill., Kohler has been with the Weber Organization for more than 15 years and currently serves as general manager of Weber Granite City Chevrolet, Weber Granite City Ford and Weber Commercial Truck Center.
