Derrick Chubbs

After a nationwide search, Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida — which includes West Volusia in its multi-county service area — has named Derrick Chubbs as its new president and CEO, effective Jan. 1.

Chubbs succeeds Dave Krepcho, who will retire at the end of 2021 after leading the nonprofit since 2004.

For the past five years, Chubbs has been president and CEO of Central Texas Food Bank (CTFB) in Austin, the largest hunger-relief agency in Central Texas.

Prior to joining the Food Bank Network, Chubbs was with the American Red Cross, where he held both regional and national executive roles.

Chubbs is a graduate of the Robinson College of Business at Georgia State University, and is nearing completion of his master’s in public administration from The University of Texas.

“It is my honor and privilege to join this team as we continue with our relentless pursuit towards eliminating hunger in Central Florida,” said Chubbs.

Chubbs, his wife, Loly, and dog, Einstein, are looking forward to making Central Florida their new home.
