Tiller to Lead GGC Foundation

Greenwood, SC – The Greenwood Genetic Center (GGC) has named William ‘Bill’ Tiller as the new Executive Director of the GGC Foundation.

Tiller comes to GGC with a long and successful career in fundraising and development, working primarily in the areas of children’s health and advocacy.
He has secured and directed approximately $43 million to support numerous nonprofit organizations including The Meyer Center for Special Children,
Make-A-Wish Foundation of SC, and most recently served as President and CEO of the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation.

“We are thrilled to have someone with Bill’s experience and passion for serving families who are affected by birth defects, disabilities, and autism,”
said Boo Ramage, outgoing Interim Executive Director of the GGC Foundation.

Ramage stepped in to temporarily lead the 501(c)3 fundraising arm of GGC last July, successfully steering the final phase of the $1.56 million ‘Journey of Discovery’ campaign that supported several innovative technologies in research and diagnostic testing.

“GGC has been so fortunate to have strong philanthropic support throughout our history,” said Steve Skinner, MD, Director of GGC. “Bill brings valuable
expertise as we expand our reach and advance our mission to serve families with compassion and expertise.”

“I feel a deep sense of calling to the mission of GGC, and I pledge to move the mission forward with purpose and joy,” said Tiller.”I look forward to working
alongside GGC’s distinguished professionals, in partnership with donors and investors, and in service to the many children and families who look to
GGC for comfort and care.”
