Incoming North Texas Food Bank Board of Directors Chair Anurag Jain just announced that Trisha Cunningham has been named president/CEO of North Texas Food Bank.
The former Texas Instruments Chief Citizenship Officer will oversee the “a group of 200 NTFB employees in their work to provide access to healthy foods for food insecure individuals across NTFB’s 13-county service area.”
During her tenure at TI, the company “climbed up CR Magazine’s Top 100 Corporate Citizens annual rankings, coming in at number 15 on the list in 2017.”
This new role is not Trisha’s first involvement in the non-profit sector. She has served in leadership positions for Leadership Women (national), Girl Scouts of Northeast Texas, VolunteerNow (Volunteer Center of North Texas), Girls Inc. of Metropolitan Dallas, Dallas Friday Group, Dallas Breakfast Group, DFW Corporate Citizenship Network, Junior League of Dallas, Institute for Innovation and Entrepreneurship, Advisory Board – Alliance for Greater Works, Leadership Dallas, Leadership Texas, Leadership International and International Women’s Forum Fellows Program.
According to Anurag, “We are confident that Trisha’s unique experiences and passion for strengthening the communities she is a part of make her the right leader to take the helm at NTFB.”
Trisha will be in the office officially on Monday, July 17. Instead of sending her flowers, why not make a donation to the NTFB in her name?
