Chairman of the Georgia Gwinnett College Foundation Board of Trustees Glenn White has announced that he will step down from his historic, five-year post. A successor will be named in June, to begin serving July 1.

“I have had the incredible experience of watching this college grow from a dream to a comprehensive campus of almost 6,000 students,” White said. “I have enjoyed my association with GGC in this role. The time is right to give someone else the opportunity to serve as board chair as the college enters into its next exciting phase of growth.” 

With a career of more than 37 years in the banking industry and an extensive record of community service, White brought a broad perspective to his role as board chair.

“The GGC Foundation has been very fortunate to have had Glenn White at the helm during these critical first years,” said GGC President Daniel J. Kaufman. “His leadership has been invaluable. 

He helped us get the foundation and the college off to a great start. I’m sure we will continue to make him proud. We look forward to his continuing contributions as a member of the board of trustees.”

”Being the first to serve as trustee chair for a new college is no small task. The challenges are great but the opportunities are greater,” said Gordon Harrison, president of the GGC Foundation. “The caliber of Glenn’s leadership sets a high standard for all who will follow him.”

White is president of the Atlanta Region–United Community Banks and has held leadership positions with several other banks in the Atlanta area. His impressive community involvement record includes serving as chairman of the University System of Georgia (USG) board of regents, and the Gwinnett Chamber of Commerce board of directors. He has been president of the Council for Quality Growth and Gwinnett Council for the Arts. He has served on the board of directors for the USG Foundation, Metro Atlanta Homebuilders Association and Gwinnett Foundation/Northeast Georgia Community Foundation. He has been a prominent volunteer leader for the United Way.
