Pebble Hill Foundation Announces Staff Changes

The Board of Trustees of Pebble Hill Foundation announces administration staff changes at Pebble Hill Plantation, Thomasville, Georgia.

Wallace Goodman, Director, retired after 18 years of service.  According to Pebble Hill Foundation Board member, Nancy Ireland Stahl, “Wallace came to Pebble Hill in 1999.  He was the perfect person at the time to take on the myriad of capital projects that faced us moving into the 21st century.  He brought stability, a vision and experience.  Pebble Hill today reflects his hard work, determination, and devotion.” 

The Board of Trustees voted unanimously to promote Whitney White to Executive Director.  “Whitney knows Pebble Hill inside and out.  She has been a part of the team for years and her knowledge of the plantation, its traditions, history, and family is remarkable.  She has created our very successful event venue business among many other things and the Board is delighted that she has become the new Executive Director of Pebble Hill.  Pebble Hill’s future is in very good hands!” said Board member, Nancy Ireland Stahl. 

Whitney was first introduced to the plantation while in elementary school when her mother, Sue White, served as Assistant Director.  A graduate of Brookwood School, she received a Bachelor’s of Science degree from Berry College in Rome, Georgia and a Master’s of Business Administration from Thomas University.

After graduating from Berry College, Whitney returned to Thomasville and began her career at Pebble Hill.  She served in numerous capacities, most recently as Events Manager and then Museum Manager.  Under her direction, the number of special event bookings grew exponentially with as many as 90+ wedding-related and other special events occurring at the plantation in one year. 

In July 2013, she was promoted to Museum Manager.  Since that time, museum visitation has reached its highest level in more than 5 years.  She has participated in study programs including the Victorian Society in America’s Newport Summer School, the Winterthur Institute, and the Attingham Trust Summer School. 

“First of all, I thank the Board of Trustees for this opportunity.  Pebble Hill has been a part of my life in some capacity for so many years, and I look forward to taking on this new role.  There is much to learn, but we have a great staff who are helping to make this transition easier.  While continuing to sustain and build the special event business, we are going to work to bring more attention and focus to the museum and its programming.”
