Boys & Girls Clubs-TC taps two internal leaders to guide organizational innovation and growth

Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Tarrant County (BGCGTC) recently tapped two internal team members to fill newly created leadership roles. Marcus Hicks has been named chief development officer and Matt Sinclair is now serving as senior vice president of operations. Hicks and Sinclair will help guide BGCGTC’s innovative efforts to serve young people and families in Tarrant and Denton counties.

“As we looked for new ways to make an impact in Greater Tarrant and Denton counties, we recognized the need for more expansive leadership roles to help our organization grow. When we thought through the personal qualities needed for those new roles, we realized we already have two great individuals – Marcus Hicks and Matt Sinclair – on our team who truly live our mission,” said Daphne Barlow Stigliano, BGCGTC CEO and president.

Hicks is responsible for advancing the BGCGTC’s revenue strategy and serves as the organization’s top fundraiser. In addition to leading the BGCGTC advancement team, he oversees the recently unveiled Blue Door Kitchen, a state-of-the-art commercial facility that now delivers healthy meals and snacks to 3,500 members each day. Hicks also leads efforts to explore using the kitchen to expand social enterprise activities.

Hicks joined BGCGTC as senior vice president of operations in December 2021 and was promoted to chief operating office in 2023. Prior to that, he worked 20 years in a variety of leadership capacities with Texas and Tennessee organizations. He attended Texas State University in San Marcos, and attained Six Sigma certification from Villanova University in Villanova, Pa.

Sinclair, who joined BGCGTC in 2007, is now responsible for all afterschool and summer services held at branches, schools and mobile sites. During his tenure, he has worked in a variety of capacities, including gang intervention program coordinator, branch director, director of operations, and vice president of branches, vice president of community partnerships. Sinclair holds a bachelor’s in criminal justice and corrections, a master’s in public administration, and is pursuing a Ph.D. in urban and public administration from the University of Texas at Arlington.
