Wednesday, Jun 17, 2015


Geoffrey M. Rogers

Delaware resident Geoffrey M. Rogers has been named to The Nemours Foundation Board of Directors. Mr. Rogers is a Managing Director with Glenmede Trust and Director of the firm’s Wilmington office, which he launched in June 1999. Mr. Rogers has more than twenty-five years of estate planning and financial services experience. Prior to joining Glenmede, Mr. Rogers was a vice president with Scudder Private Investment Counsel and held senior positions with the Wilmington Trust Company and Delaware Trust Company (now Wells Fargo).

Over many years, Mr. Rogers has demonstrated a deep commitment to his community through his involvement with a number of professional and community organizations. He is a member of the Philadelphia Federal Reserve Nominating Committee. He serves as a board member of Washington College, Winterthur Museum, Operation Warm, the Historical Society of Delaware and he is a member of the Delaware Business Roundtable. He is Past Chairman of the Board of the Delaware Bankers Association, Sanford School, the Estate Planning Council of Delaware, Wilmington Renaissance and the Wilmington Tax Group. Previously Mr. Rogers was a board member of the Delaware Symphony, National Association of Estate Planners and Councils, and the World Affairs Council of Wilmington.

Mr. Rogers received his B.A. from Washington College and is a graduate of Harvard Business School’s Advanced Management Program. He and his family reside in Greenville, Delaware.

Geoff credits the experience his mother had as a volunteer at duPont Hospital for Children, as well as the care his own children received at the hospital over the years with deepening his affinity for Nemours and his desire to get involved. But it was his personal connection with John (Jack) Porter, former head of the Delaware Trust Company and longtime member of The Nemours Foundation Board of Directors that sealed the deal.

“It is my privilege to serve an organization that is as well-respected and mission-focused as Nemours,” noted Mr. Rogers. “And to be able to make meaningful contributions on a Board made up of individuals such as Jack Porter, whose standing in the community and many contributions to Delaware have been so profound, is really an honor.”

“We are pleased to welcome Geoff as a Director,” remarked John Lord, Chairman of the Board of Directors of The Nemours Foundation. “His experience and understanding of the issues facing organizations like Nemours, as well as his deep ties within the state of Delaware and beyond, are tremendous assets in our work to carry on Mr. duPont’s legacy.”
