Coastal Humane Society Executive Director Joe Montisano has resigned from that position.

The board of directors has formed a search committee to find the organization’s next leader.

In an email Thursday to employees, board president Tony McDonald said Montisano informed the board he would be departing, but that he had left the organization “in great shape.”

Montisano came to the Brunswick shelter in March 2015, after working for an animal care center in Florida.

The board will meet this week to develop a timetable for a search, but McDonald wrote, “All is well and we are in a good place.”
