Inasmuch Foundation Announces Organizational Changes
Over the last 20 years, Inasmuch Foundation has slowly and strategically expanded from a single employee in 2002 to a team of nine dedicated, passionate and highly qualified professionals. It is my great honor to share with you the following announcements, recognizing the evolution of our amazing team.
Richard Davis – Senior Advisor – Richard started at Inasmuch Foundation in July of 2004 as Chief Financial Officer. Before taking on this critical position, he worked at Hogan Taylor for 18 years, the last five as a partner. As Richard transitions into this Senior Advisor role, his extensive market and financial knowledge will remain a vital asset to Inasmuch Foundation’s current and future investment strategies. Richard also served on the board of the OKC chapter of the Oklahoma Society of CPAs. Richard is a major supporter of hometown charities including the Blackwell Public Schools Foundation and Blackwell Associated Charities.
