The United Way of the Lowcountry Board of Directors has announced the resignation of President and CEO Tina Lamb Gentry.  Gentry has accepted a position as Chief Advancement and Access Officer with TCN based in North Carolina. Gentry’s last day will be Sept. 30.   

Gentry has led the organization for the past 5 1/2 years through a number of pivotal transitions and challenges.  

“It has truly been an honor and privilege to lead this wonderful organization,” said Gentry.  “I appreciate the support this community has given us and I am very proud of the work we have accomplished for the people of Beaufort and Jasper Counties.”

The Board of Directors will be forming a search committee for the CEO position in the coming days. 

“Tina has been an outstanding leader in this organization and in our community,” says Jon Rembold, United Way of the Lowcountry Board of Directors, Acting Chairman. “Under her leadership, Tina helped grow the annual campaign, transition the organization fully into Community Impact, relocate the Beaufort office debt-free and expand the Education Impact Initiative significantly with stellar results. Tina also helped implement a call center during the aftermath of two hurricanes within 11 months and worked to repair homes with the Long Term Recovery Group for our residents. Tina will be greatly missed and leaves behind big shoes to fill.”
