Doug LanpherExecutive Director

Doug Lanpher graduated from Vanderbilt University, Gamma Chapter, in 1977. He has served as the organization’s Executive Director for over 10 years and also serves as the President of the Deke Foundation. Doug lives outside of Chicago and believes that DKE’s success relies on a number of factors, the most important one of which is that we have a corps of dedicated undergraduate leaders who are willing to take the time and effort – often with little or no appreciation or recognition – to make their chapters better.
