ABOUT TD SMYERS:
TD Smyers is the Chief Executive Officer of the American Red Cross North Texas Region. His selection for this distinguished post in 2012 marked Smyers’ transition to the independent sector from a successful career in the US Navy. Smyers retired from the Navy, at the rank of Captain, following his tour as Commanding Officer of Naval Air Station Fort Worth.

As CEO, Smyers’ fundamental leadership philosophy is focused on four essential elements: transparency, integrity, risk tolerance and embracing continuous change. Seeking to optimize the efficiencies of a national enterprise while building a culture of collaboration across a dispersed workforce, Smyers is passionate about strengthening the local presence of the American Red Cross.

Dedicated to the Red Cross mission, Smyers leads his team in managing a complex workforce spanning 121,000 square miles. Nationally, Smyers serves as a key member of the Red Cross Real Estate Development and Service to the Armed Forces Strategy Teams.

A 2014 graduate of Leadership North Texas (LNT), Smyers now serves as president of the LNT Alumni Association. He also holds board positions with the North Texas Commission (NTC) and North Texas Leaders and Executives Advocating Diversity (LEAD), as well as serving on the Executive Council of the Lockheed Martin Armed Forces Bowl and Fort Worth Executive Roundtable. From 2012 through 2014, Smyers led the City of Fort Worth’s effort in the commissioning of USS Fort Worth and support of the Ship’s crew as Chairman of the Commissioning Committee.

Smyers holds a Bachelor’s Degree from The United States Naval Academy and a Master’s Degree in Strategic Resourcing from the National Defense University’s Industrial College of the Armed Forces.

TD Smyers and his family make their home in Fort Worth, Texas.
