The Prison Entrepreneurship Program, led by CEO Bert Smith, has selected a new Chief Development Officer, effective February 1, 2012.  Jeremy Gregg, who has most recently served as Executive Director for The PLAN Fund, has also founded Executives in Action and held the position of Director of Development at CitySquare and with the Camp Fire USA Lone Star Council.  Since 2001 he has been an integral part of fundraising and strategy for key Dallas non-profits, and PEP eagerly anticipates the energy, expertise, and forward thinking that he brings to our organization.  He will be leading the efforts of the PEP Development team from the Dallas branch office.

PEP is a group of servant leaders on a mission to transform inmates and executives by unlocking human potential through entrepreneurial passion, education and mentoring.

The program engages the nation’s top business and academic talent to constructively redirect inmates’ ambitions by equipping them with values-based entrepreneurial training—enabling them to productively re-enter society. With the active involvement of hundreds of executive and MBA volunteers, PEP runs two five month business plan competitions in prison each year and then provides a broad range of post-release programs including housing assistance, work readiness services, continuing education, executive mentoring and small business start-up assistance in Houston and Dallas. Program graduates have a return-to-prison rate of less than 10%.  For more information, visit
