Three individuals have left their posts of the Austin Hatcher Foundation board: Adriene Petmecky, who served two years; Dr. Felicito Fernando, who served for 11 years, a stint that started when the foundation was formed in 2006; and Robert McMahan, ex vice president, Erwin Marine Sales who served three years and was the foundation’s treasurer. In addition, Dale Hetzler also left his board position after serving three years to become executive director of the foundation. 

“We are losing some extremely talented individuals who have been essential in helping chart our course of further growth and relevance, but we also are proud to welcome our new members who bring their own unique experience and skill sets,” said Austin Hatcher Foundation Chairman of the Board Jim Osborn. 

“Our board membership reflects our core support in the Chattanooga area. That is by design. Whatever expansion we experience will not alter our fundamental commitment to this region which has made everything we do possible, since our formation in 2006.”
