The Board of Directors of Gulf Coast Community Foundation (Gulf Coast) is pleased to announce the selection of Phillip P. Lanham as its next President|CEO. Lanham will join Gulf Coast on June 1 following the national search conducted by the Board’s CEO Search Committee and executive search firm Russel Reynolds. Lanham currently serves as the Chief Philanthropy Officer at Greater Cincinnati Foundation where he successfully led the philanthropic partnerships team in providing strategic guidance for relationships with donors, nonprofits, businesses, and private foundations. He has built a reputation as an accomplished executive leader with a strong background in creating results-driven strategies. Beginning his career with his alma mater, University of Cincinnati, where he earned his MBA, Lanham has spent his entire career serving the philanthropic and nonprofit communities. He is a Chartered Advisor in Philanthropy® and a member of the 21/64 Network, a cutting-edge nonprofit specializing in understanding and engaging the next generation within family philanthropy. Lanham joins at a significant point in Gulf Coast’s history with the foundation recently announcing $500 million in community impact following the news of Dr. Mark S. Pritchett’s impending retirement. Pritchett will officially retire in late spring and will support the transition as needed. Spending many family vacations in the Gulf Coast region, Lanham is familiar with its incredibly philanthropic community and beautiful surroundings. Lanham’s passion for community is reflective in his board service with the Advancement Network for community foundations where he is the immediate past chair, as well as serving as the Vice Chair of the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center Board. He also enjoys the arts sector serving on the Music Hall Revitalization Company board, which is responsible for maintaining the iconic performance home of Cincinnati Ballet, Cincinnati Opera, Cincinnati Symphony/Pops Orchestras, and May Festival. He and his wife Tami are proud parents to two boys who share a love of football and the beach. Lanham will plant roots in Sarasota County in May.
