A native of Fayetteville, Arkansas, Les has served as Executive Director for the Northwest Arkansas Chapter of the American Red Cross since August 2013.
Les brings to the organization more than 20 years of international sales experience in the poultry industry. Beginning with Pilgrim’s Pride in Texas, he continued and expanded his career with Tyson Foods, Inc., based in Springdale, before starting his own international trading company.
Such skills are beneficial to the financial success of the Red Cross, which ensures that daily, around-the-clock care is provided to disaster victims. Les’ hands-on involvement helps him with a deeper understanding and appreciation of the people impacted by the work he and his teams provide with support from community leaders.
A graduate of the University of Arkansas, Les is an avid outdoorsman. During his free time he is likely enjoying the outdoor beauty of the Ozark Mountains area.
