Albany - - A South Georgia community leader is stepping down from his job at the Food Bank to oversee another non-profit agency. 

Dwayne Miles is the Executive Director of The Southwest Georgia Food bank. Thursday, he announced he'll become President and CEO of the United Way.

Miles has worked for non-profits over the past 10 years. He says he'll use that experience to bring better customer service to community organizations. 

"How effective are the programs that are serving our communities in our 12 counties, how effective and efficient are they? Are they actually or really impacting the community in the greatest way?" Miles asks.

Before his three years at the Food Bank, Miles worked for Habitat for Humanity and The Anchorage in Leesburg.

He begins his new job in July.
