Board Spotlight: Rob Pearson

Rob Pearson joined the Gaston Community Foundation’s Board of Directors in 2014 and will be ending his two terms this coming March. During his time on the Foundation’s Board of Directors, Rob has also served as the Chair of the Foundation’s Investment committee. Our investment Committee has worked diligently alongside our Investment managers, Alex. Brown, to yield the best results for our donors in order to maximize giving back to our community.

Outside of Rob’s role on the Foundation’s Board, Rob works for Pearson Properties. Pearson Properties is a full-service real estate development & brokerage firm located in Gastonia. Both this organization and the Pearson family have been true supporters of the Community Foundation for many years. Outside of his professional role, Rob has always strived to be an active member of the community. He has served on the Board of Directors for the United Way of Gaston County, Boy Scouts of America-Piedmont Council, Crisis Assistance Ministry, and Covenant Village. Additionally, he is a member of First ARP Church, where he has served as an Elder and Chairman of Deacons.

Rob is married to Jane Pearson and they have two grown children and greatly enjoy spending time with their grandchildren. We have been so fortunate to have Rob serve two terms on our Board of Directors. In his time serving he always does all he can to further maximize the Foundation’s impact in the community. We are so thankful for his time on the Gaston Community Foundation’s Board of Directors.
