As Porter-Leath’s vice president of development, Rob Hughes has many responsibilities, ranging from planning the annual Rajun Cajun Crawfish Festival to driving Toy Truck donations and assisting in a capital campaign for the organization’s Early Childhood Academy.
A native Memphian, Hughes always knew he wanted to make an impact in children’s lives and envisioned a future career in law. After earning both his bachelor’s degree and MBA from Christian Brothers University, he realized a career in nonprofits was a fit.
Hughes joined Porter-Leath in 2009 as development coordinator. He was promoted to development manager in 2010, development director in 2014 and, most recently, to vice president of development. His most important responsibility is funding programs and services for the 12,000 local children and families Porter-Leath serves.
