A driving curiosity about the world and the desire to be “a part of the solution” drive Denton Randall each day.
Randall serves as chief development officer for ElderServe Inc., a nonprofit dedicated to helping senior citizens live independently with dignity. The organization provides a variety of support services for the senior community.
Originally from Los Angeles, Randall had a storied career in radio prior to joining the non-profit world. A well-known voice in Louisville since the early 1980s, he appeared on various radio stations, and had his own radio show on 84WHAS, the “Denton Randall Radio Sunday.”
In 2000, Randall had an epiphany when covering a story about a fire, and realized his role was more than just to report the tragedy. He recalled a quote by Eldridge Cleaver who said, “You are either a part of the problem, or a part of the solution.” Randall decided to be a part of the solution, which led to his leaving radio to help the Dare to Care food bank raise money as their development director. This role was key in securing a partnership with Yum! Brands.
When Randall isn’t helping others, he enjoys biking, blues guitar, magic, and Sunday golf games at Seneca Golf Course.
