We are happy to announce the election of a new teli Board President and Treasurer. Join us in welcoming them as they share their expertise and commitment helping to guide teli into the future.
Anthony Gabbianelli, was elected President of the Board and has been a member of the Board since 2016 as Treasurer. Anthony’s expertise is in Finance. As an MBA from CMU he currently works as the Assistant Controller at EQT Corporation. Anthony’s commitment to teli is based on his passion for teli’s mission of helping kids.
“I joined teli because I wanted to give back and contribute to an organization that helps kids get a good start in life! The issues that teli helps with are often overlooked, like not being able to hold a toy or spoon. Such a small issue that’s so easily correctable, but if left uncorrected can seriously impact a child’s development and ultimately their future. Helping parents realize the importance and the benefits of Early Intervention is key. teli provides services that are life changing for the child as well as their parents.”
Brett Fulesday was elected as Treasurer and has served on the Board since 2017. Brett is a Senior Manager within the Valuation and Litigation Support Services Practice of the Pittsburgh office of Cohen & Company. He has more than 16 years of experience in valuation and litigation, supporting public and privately held, early- stage to mature companies. Brett is a lifetime learner pursuing his special interest in the area of the arts, education, entrepreneurship, and emerging technology. Brett jumped at the opportunity to serve on the board realizing the impact teli makes in the community.
“I joined teli based on its longevity and recognizable name in the Pittsburgh area serving families with newborns as well as toddlers through 3 years of age. Importantly, not only do donations fund services, but it also provides for specific items that are part of the child’s therapy so the family can incorporate Early Intervention activities into their daily routine. I have seen teli make a tangible difference in a child’s — and family’s — life.”
