We are thrilled to welcome Hank Perret as the Roundtable’s Fair Chance Hiring Champion!
He will serve the Roundtable as an Executive Fellow through Leadership Austin‘s unique program that utilizes the experience of semi- or fully retired leaders to build the capacity of community organizations.
Hank’s background in both the private and non-profit sectors is a unique fit for this project. In 2016, Hank retired after 6+ years as President and CEO of the Central Texas Food Bank, after completing a $25 million capital campaign and constructing a state of the art Food Bank to better serve the 21 counties in Central Texas served by the Food Bank. Prior to that, Hank spent 38 years in the semiconductor industry in various roles – Senior Vice President at Zarlink Semiconductor, President and CEO of Legerity Inc., Vice President and CFO at Actel Corporation and in other financial positions at Applied Materials, National Semiconductor and General Electric.
Hank will work on a part-time basis with the Roundtable over the next year to engage Austin-area employers about the benefits of fair chance employment.
