Up one level
Service to Society Award

Gary Gregory graduated from Penn State in 1986 with a bachelor’s degree in Economics and has since been working in the healthcare industry and the nonprofit sector. He has held leadership and executive roles across an array of Fortune 250 companies and successful startups. Today, he is the chief executive officer, president, and board member of Perthera, the leading Therapeutic Intelligence Company that uses technology to precisely pinpoint cancer treatments on the individual level. After losing their sister to domestic violence in 2006, Gary and his brother, Arthur, put their grief into action by establishing the Every Great Reason Foundation, a not-for-profit organization that employs awareness, rights, education, emancipation, and support to help victims of domestic violence find a way to get out of their situations and move forward with their lives. Gary travels throughout the country speaking about domestic violence prevention.
