As we mentioned a few weeks ago, we are honored to announced that John Harrell has joined PEP’s Houston Advisory Board!

John retired from Deloitte after 42 years, including 29 years as a partner. He primarily served as the lead client service and audit partner for public and private entities. For 4 years before retiring, John made regular trips to India where the U.S. Deloitte firm has a subsidiary.

He has been married to Diana, who is also involved in PEP, for 44 years. They have two children. They are both Master Naturalists where they enjoy their love of the coast through volunteering in wetlands restoration and other projects. John also plays golf and tennis, and is active in his church as well as Bible Study Fellowship.

John first came to a PEP in-prison event in 2011. He has since been to prison over fifteen times, and has rapidly become a vital part of every PEP class that has graduated over the past few years. His insights during our participants’ business pitches are always insightful, and he has made a tremendous impact on the aspiring entrepreneurs whom he has coached through our one-on-one events.

Welcome to the HAB, John!
