After receiving applications from all over the United States, and one from Egypt, People Attempting to Help (PATH) has named local nonprofit leader Greg Grubb as its new executive director.
“It's a great day for us at PATH,” said the Rev. Stuart Baskin, president of the board of directors. “We are thrilled beyond words.”
Grubb has more than 19 years experience as board member and volunteer at various Tyler nonprofits, including Habitat for Humanity, Leadership Tyler, and PATH. Before his time in nonprofits, he spent a 30-year career in the oil and gas industry, eventually moving up to president and co-owner of Texlan Oil Company.
“When he retired, Greg didn't just go play golf,” Baskin said.
Grubb has lived in Tyler for 25 years.
“I'm honored and thrilled,” Grubb said. “I love this organization.”
