Posted: May 26, 2015 by Prison Entrepreneurship Program (PEP) in About PEP

Dear Friends,

We are delighted to announce that Tony Mayer has joined PEP as our Chief Development Officer! Tony joins us from a long and successful business career in the risk and insurance industry, where he has worked with energy and marine clients for more than 30 years, originally with Marsh and later with Arthur J. Gallagher.

He has also served the non-profit and ministry world as a board member and employee, most recently with our good friends at The WorkFaith Connection, where he was a board member before joining the staff to expand relationships with local employers. In addition, he has served as Chairman of the Board of the Houston Speech and Hearing Clinic, and on the board of Archway Academy in Houston. He continues as a board member of The Barnabas Group Houston (helping men and women match their passions and gifts with service in a ministry), serves as a small group leader and Stephen Minister at St. John the Divine Episcopal Church, and as a volunteer with Faithwalking.

Tony will be based in our Houston office and his first full day on the job was Monday, May 11!

We are also proud to announce that we filled our Executive Relations Manager position in Houston! Charles Hearne is a class XVII graduate of PEP who finished second in the Business Plan Competition and was voted “Mr. Excellence” by his classmates. He was released in May of 2013 in Dallas, Texas.

About three weeks after release, Charles began his role as Development Associate for PEP, where he also managed Covington House, one of PEP’s transitional homes in Houston. He served in this capacity for two years before being promoted this month to the rank of Executive Relations Manager!

In addition to working at PEP, Charles is currently pursuing a Bachelor’s degree in finance. He has been named to both the Honor’s List and the Dean’s List for his academic achievements. He has also recently been inducted into both the National Society of Collegiate Scholars (NSCS) and Phi Theta Kappa.

Join us in welcoming both Tony and Charles to their new roles at PEP!
