Board Leadership Changes Announced
After more than 40 years of leadership, Sam Gary, founder of The Piton Foundation and Gary Community Investment Company, stepped down as chairman of the board of both organizations. He will continue to serve on the boards as chairman emeritus.
With this announcement, Chris Watney, who has served as a board member since 2016, was appointed chair of the boards, and Dave Younggren, President and CEO of Gary Community Investments, was appointed vice chair.
“I am empowering our boards to continue executing on my vision of using business and philanthropy to improve the lives of Colorado’s low-income children and families,” says Mr. Gary. “Under Chris and Dave’s leadership, I am confident that GCI will continue to take smart risks, think innovatively and create opportunities for those who need it most.”
