Debra Grandjean

Debra currently serves as the VP and Parks & Trails Chair on the FORHA Board of Directors. Since joining the FORHA Board in 2014, Debra has served on the Parks & Trails Committee where she assumed Chair responsibility in 2015. In this role, she has helped to significantly enhance the parks & trails systems but believes there is still a lot to be done which is why she is seeking re-election. Some of the accomplishments under her leadership are as follows:

• Completed a three year program to install new signage in all parks and on all trails so members can easily find and navigate the trails

• Installed new play equipment in Vestal Park working closely with a group of parents who use this park to provide input on equipment selection

• Completed a major erosion control project with a 52 ft retaining wall and culverts in Vestal Park to arrest granite walking path erosion

• Set up a parks & trails volunteer program and worked with them to establish a 3 year vision for the parks & trails

• Established a successful sponsorship program where residents, organizations and corporations can contribute much needed park benches, tables, and trash receptacles.

Debra retired 3 years ago as a partner from Ernst & Young (EY) after 31 years of business transformation, project management and global account management experience. She will continue to use her proven track record of business experience and volunteer spirit to make a difference for our residents. Debra and her family have lived in FOR since2000. Her husband, Mark, spends a significant amount of time volunteering on parks & trails projects.

Debra holds a MBA from University of Houston where she graduated Magna Cum Laude. She has continued studies at Harvard School of Business and INSEAD Singapore Business School of Strategy. Their children are both honor graduates of Texas A&M.
