Keener, a native of Abbeville, SC, is joining GGC after nine years working in development at Charleston Southern University (CSU) in Charleston, SC, most recently as Associate Vice President for Development and Special Gifts. She is a graduate of the University of South Carolina Darla Moore School of Business and earned an MBA from CSU.

“I’m grateful and thrilled for the opportunity to join the GGC family,” said Keener. “As a native of the area who has been away for 15 years, it’s exciting to return home and help impact my community. The GGC has many moving parts, and each one of the individuals on the team plays a significant role in impacting the lives of the families they serve. I am eager to begin meeting more teammates, patients, donors, investors, partners, and friends of the GGC to hear their GGC stories and explore ways to advance the mission.”

“Cady Nell brings experience and enthusiasm to the GGC Foundation, and we are thrilled to welcome her into this leadership role,” said Boo Ramage, Interim Executive Director of the Foundation. “She is already developing a plan to hit the ground running, and we look forward to adding her to our dedicated team.”
