Crown Council Team

Greg Anderson

 

 

Co-Founder & Managing Director
For more than two decades Greg Anderson has guided the Crown Council as its Managing Director.  As co-founder of the Crown Council with Steve Anderson and Walter Hailey, he was its first Managing Director and he continues in that capacity today.   Daily his central function is not just management of the group, but leading the Crown Council team to maintain the sense of community that has developed into dentistry’s finest organization.   
In 1998 he co-founded the Smiles for Life Foundation with Dr. Jeff Gray and Steve Anderson.  Today he serves as President and CEO of the Smiles for Life Foundation which through the dedicated efforts of hundreds and hundreds of Crown Council members has raised over $45,000,000.00 to help children around the world.   For the past 20 years he has also served as a member of the Board of Directors of the Garth Brooks Teammates for Kids Foundation where the Smiles for Life Foundation continues to share a common vision of building and maintaining Child Life Zones in Children’s Hospitals in North America.
His daily joy comes from speaking to members of the Crown Council and working with them to develop strategies to overcome their most pressing challenges.  However what he enjoys the very most is spending time with his wife Allyson and being involved in the lives of their three children and their families…which include 7 grandchildren (all of whom live within a very short walking distance of the family home in Salt Lake City).
He values most in others enthusiasm, kindness, dependability and integrity. 
His favorite activity of the year is the family’s annual visit together to Yellowstone National Park…followed closely (of course) by the Crown Council Annual Event.  Both of which have yearly memories that span more than a quarter of a century.

Rachel has worked for the Crown Council since its inception – 25 years!  She is a legend.  She’s been involved with the Crown Council since she was 18 years old and has been to 24 Crown Council Annual Events and planned most of them!  Rachel expresses that being with the Crown Council has been the greatest blessing of her life.  

Although Rachel has held most positions within the Crown Council, her primary role is planning the Crown Council Annual Event.  The Annual Event is so well known amongst its members and Rachel’s passion and vision pours out into each event.  It generally leaves you saying “How can you top that?!”  From start to finish, Rachel picks the theme, presenters, check-in, entertainment, decorations, recognition, and will leave you speechless as you ask yourself, “Did I come to a dental meeting?”  Rachel will create a gathering that will foster connection, problem solving, celebration, learning, sharing, and inspiration! 

Rachel has been a part of Smiles for Life since inception and loves the opportunity of traveling to the Dominican Republic and Guatemala.  “The Crown Council community is all about helping each other and doing good, and I have been so inspired by the kindness and service of those with whom I associate.”
