RALEIGH – The North Carolina Community Foundation (NCCF) has named Wilson Simmons as its chief financial officer, according to Jennifer Tolle Whiteside, NCCF CEO and president. Simmons replaces David Ryan, who retired in early 2017.


As CFO, Simmons has full management responsibilities for all financial matters of NCCF. He reports to Tolle Whiteside and is a member of NCCF’s leadership team.


Simmons brings a broad background to NCCF that includes a mix of public accounting and industry practice. He most recently served as vice president of finance at the United Way of the Greater Triangle.
