WHY I SERVE​: GREGORY EDWARDS

“Having lived in Santa Fe for the past ten years and having a second home here for over twenty-five years, I have witnessed a great “turnaround” in Christus St. Vincent Hospital over these years.  I am very impressed with the wonderful progress that the Hospital has made, culminating in its affiliation with the world renowned, Mayo Clinic.  My wife and I served as Eucharistic Ministers for many years and we have been on every floor and almost every room in the Hospital.  I have been extremely impressed with the renovations completed and underway, that add to patient comfort and care. I also was recently a patient in St. Vincent Hospital, and I was extremely pleased with the facilities and the level of service and attention that I received. I believe that my extensive business background and experience as a long time Trustee (and Treasurer) of The Catholic Foundation of the Archdiocese of Santa Fe can contribute to the progress of the Hospital and the Foundation.”

I have over four and a half decades of senior and executive management and financial experience in commercial and investment banking, as well as numerous industrial executive management positions.  I have had vast experience in mergers and acquisitions, both as a principal and intermediary, in addition to all types of financing and public offerings.  I am currently Chairman of CASS Holdings, LLC, a holding company for numerous past and currently owned companies, in industrial composites, manufacturing, Government services, and financial services industries.

Additionally, I have been a Trustee, as past Treasurer, of The Catholic Foundation of Santa Fe, and Past Chairman and Director Emeritus of the High Desert Discovery District.  I am currently a Director of numerous private companies, in various industries, throughout the Country.
