PHI KAPPA TAU FOUNDATION EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR RESIGNS
Phi Kappa Tau announced today that Tyler Wash, Georgetown ’06, will resign as the executive director of the Phi Kappa Tau Foundation effective February 1. Wash will become the executive vice president of the Delta Sigma Pi Leadership Foundation. Delta Sigma Pi is that nation’s leading co-ed professional business fraternity with nearly 300 chapters and over 265,000 initiates and is headquartered in Oxford, Ohio.
Wash enjoyed a nine-year tenure on Phi Kappa Tau’s professional staff, with four years as the Foundation’s executive director. Wash’s leadership as the executive director has seen transformational advancements throughout many aspects of the Foundation. The key achievement was the creation and execution of the Foundation’s first comprehensive strategic plan.
The Foundation’s Brotherhood Fund (annual giving) grew steadily year after year and is now at an all-time high under Wash’s leadership. During this time, the Foundation also launched intentional major gift and planned giving programs, which created a dedicated focus on transformational giving.
In addition to his service as the executive director, Wash served as the 20th editor-in-chief of the Laurel, Phi Kappa Tau’s magazine. During his tenure as editor-in-chief, Wash oversaw a complete redesign of the magazine, including the visual appearance and content direction.
“His presence will be missed, but the foundation he has laid will find the organization light-years down the road from the day he began.” remarked CEO Tim Hudson, Truman State ’97. “I am excited for him personally and for his future. On behalf of the Board of Trustees and our entire Executive Office staff, I want to express our gratitude to Tyler for his nine years of service, vision, dedication and commitment to Phi Kappa Tau.”
As Wash departs Phi Kappa Tau’s professional staff, he made a commitment to be an active volunteer and to remain a member of Foundation’s Ewing T. Boles Society.
“It has been an honor to serve Phi Kappa Tau and its educational foundation. I had the unique opportunity to work with incredible people, who I will miss,” remarked Wash. “I leave my professional position at the Executive Offices with the same enthusiasm, respect and devotion that I had on the first day I arrived in Oxford. Now, on to a new chapter—one defined by loyal volunteerism.”
Wash internally announced his resignation in November 2017. Since that time CEO Tim Hudson and the Foundation Board of Trustees have been in an active process to evaluate the future staffing needs of the Foundation.
