Thomas C. Parker
Tom became President of Hutton Companies in 1984. It had always been a dream of both Tom and Betty Hutton to create a private foundation with the Company’s assets. Upon Betty’s death in 1995, the Foundation was activated and soon started a number of innovative programs. Tom is responsible for the Foundation’s fiscal and operational management. He received both his BA and MBA from California Lutheran University.
Pamela J. Lewis
Chief Operating Officer
Prior to joining Hutton Parker Foundation in May 1996, Pam, an Ohio native and BGSU graduate had spent more than 15 years as an executive in the marketing, advertising and public relations industry. Shifting from the for-profit to the non-profit sector was like switching from selling her soul to feeding her soul. Her current duties include identification, facilitation and evaluation of special initiatives, nonprofit facilities coordination and management, funding administration and Board support.
A Santa Barbara native and UCSB graduate, Robyn is your first point of contact at the Foundation regarding all funding opportunities and distributions. It is her job to work with applicants prior to submission in developing strong and appropriate funding requests to be reviewed by the Foundation’s Grant Selection Committee. Her strong organizational, communication and office management skills help to keep day-to-day operations running smoothly.
