Two new directors named to NCCF’s statewide board

The North Carolina Community Foundation (NCCF) is pleased to announce the appointment of two new directors to the statewide board, according to Linda Staunch, chair.

Named were Alexander Graham Floyd and Steven Wangerin. As members of the board, these statewide directors will provide leadership in the areas of funds development, grantmaking and strategic planning to ensure that the organization continues to meet community needs across North Carolina. Board members also serve as the Foundation’s ambassadors throughout the state.

Floyd lives in Granville County and Raleigh. He is founder and president of Floyd Oil Company. The privately held, family owned company focuses on the acquisition of long life oil and gas assets in the southwestern United States as well as real estate and venture capital in North Carolina. He is a graduate of UNC-Chapel Hill, where he received both his undergraduate and graduate degrees. He was educated at Virginia Episcopal School, where he is a former trustee and remains an active volunteer. He attends Christ Episcopal Church in Raleigh.

Wangerin is CEO of W.T. Humphrey, Inc. in Jacksonville, which is the parent company for several enterprises that provide general and mechanical contracting for federal projects in the southeastern United States. He is a graduate of UNC-Charlotte and the Louisiana State University Graduate School of Banking.  Wangerin is involved in many organizations and civic activities, including the NC Infrastructure Authority; the Jacksonville Rotary Club; the Jacksonville-Onslow Economic Development Board, which he chairs; and serving as president of the Onslow Caring Communities Foundation, an affiliate of NCCF.

NCCF’s CEO and President Jennifer Tolle Whiteside said she was looking forward to working with the new board members. “Both Alex and Steve bring a wealth of business acumen to our board and a deep knowledge of our North Carolina communities,” she said. “They will be true assets to our statewide board.”
