The Sundt Foundation has named three new officers to its board of directors. Tom Crohurst, area quality manager in Tucson and the board’s former vice president, will serve as president for the coming year.
Lisa White, a project administrator from Sundt’s Tempe office, will fill the role of vice president, while John Parsons, a Sundt senior accountant in Tucson, will be the board’s new treasurer. He replaces Carol Peabody, a longtime Sundt employee who plans to retire next year.
Meanwhile, Abigail Shaver, office manager for Sundt Construction’s San Antonio office and immediate past-president, was elected to a three-year term on the board. She will continue to represent Foundation members throughout Texas.
“Giving back to the community is a personal value of mine that aligns with the corporate conviction here at Sundt that supporting the less fortunate is the right thing to do,” said Crohurst. “As individuals – and as a company and a foundation – we have a tremendous opportunity to make a difference in the communities where we live and work.”
The Sundt Foundation was established by Sundt in 1999 to give its employee-owners a means of giving back to their communities. It provides financial support to nonprofit organizations dedicated to improving the lives of disadvantaged children and adults through organizations located near a Sundt office. The Foundation is primarily funded by contributions from Sundt employees and company matching.
The Sundt Foundation Board of Directors is composed of nine employees, four appointed by the company and five elected by the membership. The board convenes quarterly to approve grants based on recommendations made by employee committees in each Sundt officiate on funding allocation.
Sundt recognizes the importance of community giving. Today, its employees remain dedicated to ensuring the well-being of others, donating generously to charitable causes and volunteering hundreds of hours each year to help various local organizations achieve their missions. For many employees, the Sundt Foundation is the principal way by which they give back to the communities they call home.
