Charleston Stage’s Board of Trustees Treasurer, Dave Marley, Receives The Laura Hewitt Distinguished Service Award
Laura Hewitt was a great philanthropist and ardent advocate of the Charleston arts and food industries and, in many ways, these industries came of age in the past decade, in no small part due to Laura’s leadership.
Laura served on Charleston Stage’s Board from 1995-2001 taking on many leadership roles including Board President and Vice President. She was instrumental in establishing the Company’s Annual Gala and under her leadership the company established its Professional Resident Acting Program. Today, more than 83 young professionals have been a part of this program, lighting up the Dock Street Stage and enriching arts education for more than 150,000 young people throughout our community.
This year’s recipient of The Laura Hewitt Distinguished Service Award was awarded to Dave Marley, Charleston Stage’s Board of Trustees Treasurer. Dave is a Senior Vice President and Senior Private Banker for the Wells Fargo Private Bank. Dave earned his Bachelor of Science degree with a double major in Finance and Management from The University of South Carolina. He is also a graduate of the Graduate School of Bank Management at The University of Virginia through the Consumer Bankers Association and the Certified Financial Planner program at the College of Charleston.
Dave resides in Mount Pleasant with his wife Tracy. They have a son who is a graduate of The University of South Carolina and also lives in Mount Pleasant, and a daughter who is a Senior at The University of South Carolina.
