Mark Graham was introduced on Tuesday as the new President and CEO of the city's largest provider of funds to social programs. Graham has been a part of Tulsa's professional world for more than 20 years. He said his first exposure to the agency was an eye-opening one right out of college, when he was sent to collect donations in a struggling part of the city.

"It really became a life defining moment for me to realize that regardless of where you are in life, there is always going to be somebody that is in need and that you're in a position to help. These people were a perfect example, they didn't have a lot, from all outward appearance, but yet they knew that there were people that were in need and they were there to help them,” said TAUW President/CEO Mark Graham.

Outgoing president Kathleen Coan will remain in a consulting position until the end of the year.
