  Executive Director/CEO - T. Duane Gordon
T. Duane Gordon was hired in December 2007 as Executive Director of the Middletown Community Foundation. A graduate of Mississippi State University with a degree in communications and journalism, his first career was as a newspaper reporter and editor at the Madison County Journal, earning him two dozen awards from the Mississippi Press Association. He then joined the Community Foundation of Greater Jackson (Mississippi) as Communications and Development Officer and was soon named by the Southeastern Council on Foundations as a Hull Leadership Fellow in its program to identify and nurture future foundation CEOs. He moved up to the rank of Director of Finance and Technology, although in practice his role was that of Chief Operating Officer when he left the Jackson Foundation the end of 2007 after eight years at the organization. During that time, he also spent nine non-consecutive months in 2005 and 2006 serving as Acting President of the Community Foundation of Greater Jackson during three leaves of absence taken by the CEO.

Since coming to Middletown, he has served as secretary of the South Main Historic Neighborhood Association and 2011-2012 president of the Kiwanis Club of Middletown, during which he earned the distinctions of Distinguished Club and Distinguished President from Kiwanis International, the first time in several years that the Middletown club had received such honors. He served on the board of the Butler County Development Roundtable and was chairperson for the 2011 Butler County National Philanthropy Day luncheon. He serves as an ex officio board member for the Community Building Institute at Miami University Middletown. He hosts TV Middletown’s twice-monthly public affairs interview program Foundation Matters, currently in its seventh season, and is a member of both the Rotary Club and Kiwanis Club.

A classically-trained vocalist who has performed in Carnegie Hall with the Mississippi Chorus, he is a frequent performer at Middletown Lyric Theatre and sings with the Middletown Civic Chorus, Middletown Symphony Chorale, Martin Luther King Jr. Day Middletown Community Choir and Temple Choir of First United Methodist Church. He also served as one of the two Guest Conductor Candidates for the Middletown Symphony Orchestra in 2011 and with his competitor Dr. Elizabeth Lolli raised the largest sum ever in the conductor auction’s 37-year history. He is married and has one son.
