|Doug Marshall is the President and CEO of Presbyterian Home for Children located in Talladega now in its 150 years of serving at risk and homeless children. In a state with age 6 being the average age of a homeless person, he is now leading efforts to helping put both homeless children and their mothers on a path of hope, along with providing a residential therapeutic treatment program for teenage girls who have been subject to severe abuse and/or neglect. Marshall is on the EAGLE Accreditation Commission with the United Methodist Association, the only faith-based accreditation in the world for residential child care programs.
In 2018, he was recognized as “20 Making a Difference” in Talladega and St. Clair Counties. He serves on the Board of Directors for United Way of North Talladega County and Presbyterian Oaks Apartments.
In 2017, he was recognized as one of the Top 50 Over 50 in central Alabama. Serving children and adults with disabilities, he played a key role in the success of both United Ability as its CFO and the Alabama Family Trust as its CFO, Chief Tax Officer, and Director of Community Relations.
He enjoyed 25 years with Energen Corporation, where he served as VP/Controller of Alagasco, now Spire with direct responsibility for 1/3 of operations with the State’s largest natural gas utility and Director of Tax for Energen Corporation when it was one of the country’s larger independent oil and gas producers.
He is a CPA and worked in the Tax Department for Ernst & Young, LLP. Marshall also serves as a career and life coach with Grace Ministries in Birmingham. In his spare time, he co-founded two community newspapers in Selma and Leeds. He and his wife, Christy have been married for 32 years with 3 adult children and 1 grandson.
|David Glenn is the Vice President of Human Resources of United Methodist Communities. His passion for healthcare was spurred by surviving cancer 35 years ago. Having been so impressed with the care, he made it his goal to work at the very hospital where he was treated. Five years later he became the Assistant Director of Personnel at Riverview Medical Center.
From that point forward, Dave’s career has focused on not-for-profit healthcare. His high regard for his grandparents, the most influential people in his life, helped steer him toward senior service and United Methodist Communities. Now, he serves as the Vice President of Human Resources and loves supporting and encouraging associates.
Dave graduated with a B.S. in Economics from Rutgers University and earned his M.B.A. in Management from Monmouth University. He has more than 35 years of generalist and administrative human resources experience and considers his work his mission.
Dave says, “Working for a faith-based, values-driven organization with so many talented and genuinely nice people is a privilege and a pleasure. I look forward to what the future holds for United Methodist Communities.” Dave cherishes every opportunity to spend time with his granddaughter Sophia.
