Giving Leadership

CFT positioned for continued growth and scale

In 2023, we gave gratitude to retiring President and CEO Dave Scullin, and welcomed incoming President and CEO Wayne White. Wayne took the helm on July 31, following Dave’s spring retirement.

While the search for CFT’s next CEO was underway, Frank Risch, former CFT Board Chair and longtime community and business leader, served as Special Advisor to Board Chair Richie Butler.

“The path to this decision spanned many states and ZIP codes, and ultimately resulted in the successful recruitment of a talented leader to join our North Texas community as CFT’s next President and CEO,” said Richie.

Since joining CFT, Wayne has been focused on listening to and learning from staff, the Board, and our community.

“CFT’s extensive progress has been a collective effort through our amazing staff and dynamic Board of Trustees, in collaboration with our many partners. CFT is uniquely positioned to build on this momentum, driving greater impact.”


“To join such a well-established and impactful organization and to have the opportunity to build on the achievements of the past 70 years through this role is a true honor, and one that I take very seriously.”
