The Planned Giving Council is chaired by Ashley Dewji, a private banker with J.P. Morgan and a member of the board of directors at Gulfshore Playhouse. Serving as co-chair is Gulfshore Playhouse Board of Director Member and Finance Committee Chairman Dave Wilson, a former managing partner at Ernst & Young, a former professor at Harvard Business School, and current board member of Barnes and Noble Education.
