A semi-retired corporate executive with a background in finance, marketing, and strategy, Portsmouth resident Brian Gibb has joined the board of directors at The Chase Home in Portsmouth. Founded in 1877, The Chase Home provides at-risk youth across the state with prevention, early intervention, residential, and community-based services.
“I am starting a period of my life where I would like to spend more of my time giving back to the community,” said Gibb. “I have always had an interest in helping youth and, in particular, those that are in distress or have special needs.” He cited “the long and stable commitment” of The Chase Home to at-risk youth and their families as impetus behind his desire to support its mission. “I look forward to proactively helping guide and support The Chase Home board,” he added.
