Jeremy Gregg originally wanted to be a poet, but he decided to go after the big money in nonprofit management in 2001. After serving as a volunteer member of the Dallas Advisory Board for the Prison Entrepreneurship Program since 2007, he was named the organization’s Chief Development Officer in 2012. PEP is a pioneering nonprofit that delivers the nation’s best results in terms of recidivism, employment and small business creation among ex-offenders.

Jeremy previously served as Executive Director for a microlending institution called The PLAN Fund (now PeopleFund) as well as the founding Executive Director for Executives in Action, a nonprofit that places out-of-work executives on pro bono consulting projects at other nonprofit organizations. He received his Executive MBA from the University of Texas at Dallas, and previously earned degrees in both creative advertising and English from SMU in Dallas, Texas. His wife Natalie is also an entrepreneur who now leads her own law firm (and who also blogs for Huffington Post), and together they are raising two future small business owners named Madeleine and Harper. Jeremy blogs about prison, poetry and philanthropy at www.JeremyGregg.com.
