Katie Coleman Quoted in RTO Insider on Retirement of GCPA’s Executive Director

“GCPA’s Foreman to Retire as Executive Director”

Just the third executive director in GCPA’s 35 years, Foreman has helped guide the organization as it has expanded its regional presence and developed a program geared toward women. The organization has added events in recent years in Louisiana, Arkansas and Mexico, and held its fourth emPOWERing Women’s leadership conference in January.

Katie Coleman, a partner with Thompson & Knight and the board’s treasurer, said Foreman’s announcement was not “entirely unexpected.” Upon taking the leadership position, he told the board he planned to work for five to seven years.

“Tom is going to be hard to replace,” Coleman said. “As a former board member, he has been key in maintaining institutional knowledge. His skill in keeping everyone organized and on schedule has been important to GCPA’s growth.”
