The Trustees of the Jefferson Trust are excited to announce that Brent Percival has accepted the position as Executive Director of the Jefferson Trust. He assumed the role on January 1, 2021, following the retirement of Wayne Cozart.

Brent came to the Trust a little over two years ago from the UVA Health System Development Office to serve as Director of Development. In that time, he has recruited or renewed 18 trustees and raised over $3.5 million. He has also helped navigate the Trust’s rebranding and promotions efforts, as well as managed the budgeting and finance operation over the past year. Before joining UVA, Brent worked in development for Auburn University and in advertising with Media General. He brings a background in gift planning and a passion for the Trust!

“I’m thrilled to be the Trust’s executive director. Wayne built an incredible organization with a history of impactful grants, dedicated Trustees and an excellent staff. I’m excited to pick up the torch and lead the organization forward,” Brent shares.
