In recognition of a lifetime of humanitarian activity, business executive Jerome (Jerry) K. Greig has been selected as the Lafayette Civic Cup recipient for 2019 and will be honored on November 12 at the organization's annual banquet at the Petroleum Club.

The 2019 Lafayette Civic Cup award dinner will be held on Tuesday, November 12 from 6 p.m. - 9 p.m. at the Petroleum Club of Lafayette. Tickets are $75 per person and $600 per table of eight.

Known for successful careers in energy, healthcare, technology, process improvement and operations, Greig's civic and philanthropic impact is equally diverse. He is a past Chairman of the Board of the Greater Lafayette Chamber of Commerce (now One Acadiana) and previously served as Vice-Chair of Finance & Operations. He has served as Chairman of the Board and Campaign Chairman for United Way of Acadiana, Chairman of the Board of St. Thomas More (STM) Catholic High School and served as chairman of the Lafayette Parish School System (LPSS) Technology Peer Review Team. Additionally, in 2011 Greig was recognized as the STM Supporter of the Year.

According to Civic Cup President and 2009 recipient, Dr. Paul Azar, Jr., "Jerry's unique professional experiences, domestically and globally, across a diverse set of business challenges, gave him a unique vision that he eagerly applied to civic and charitable causes throughout our community."

In 2017 Greig retired as Chief Information Officer of Fugro Chance, Inc., a member of The Netherlands-based publicly traded (NYSE Euronext) Fugro Group of companies.

"His expertise in technology," according to Civic Cup committee member and 1999 recipient Dr. Jean Kreamer, "made him a valuable leader in education, government, and the arts. Under his guidance the LPSS technology team was responsible for bringing internet service to every classroom in nine public schools."

Greig currently serves on the Board of Directors of Blue Cross Blue Shield of Louisiana (BCBSLA) and serves as Chairman of the Compensation Committee, Vice-Chairman of the Investment and Finance Committee, is a member of the Audit Committee, and is also a board member of the BCBSLA Foundation, that focuses on health- and education-related causes.

In 2018 Greig was elected to Lafayette-based Acadian Companies Board of Directors.

Greig was awarded, by the National Association of Corporate Directors (NACD) with the Board Leadership Fellow designation, the highest level of credentialing for corporate governance and leadership in the boardroom. In 2017, the organization recognized Greig as one of the first directors nationally to complete the NACD Cyber-Risk Oversight Course, earning the NACD/CERT Certification in Cyber-security Oversight.
He has also served on the Board of Directors for the Acadiana Symphony Orchestra. He is a past member of the St. Pius X Catholic Church Pastoral Council serving as Trustee, and currently serves as a Eucharistic Minister and Lector at St. Pius.

While Greig’s career in the oil and gas industry included assignments in Dallas and Houston, he now resides in Lafayette with his wife Nancy. He earned a Bachelor of Science in mathematics from the University of Louisiana Lafayette and a Master of Science from Clemson University.

The Civic Cup dates back to 1933 when entrepreneur and Lafayette Mardi Gras founder Maurice Heymann was awarded the first cup. Subsequent recipients have included Richard Zuschlag, Madlyn Hilliard, Hank Perret, Dr. Ray Authement, Jewel Lowe, Paul Hilliard, Greg Davis, Ed Abel, Dr. Paul Azar, Jr., Kevin Moody, Gary McGoffin, Jim Prince, Clay Allen, Dr. Mary Neiheisel. and last year's honoree, Randy Haynie.
