ToolBank USA Staff


Patty Russart, CEO

Patty Russart joined ToolBank USA as CEO in May of 2018. Since late 2008, Patty was the Executive Director for the Atlanta Community ToolBank (ACTB). She began her career in Engineering for almost ten years, working in bridge rehab and road construction before transitioning to the non profit sector. In 2002 she received an MA in Organizational Management to help her better serve charitable organizations. Her mantra is ‘where there is a will there is a way’ and that is how she approaches fundraising for the ToolBank. Patty successfully completed a $1.525 million Capital Campaign for the ACTB, which allowed them to purchase a much larger warehouse space and add a Tool Training Center.

Trey Bearden, Chief Program Officer

Trey Bearden joined ToolBank USA as Chief Program Officer in July of 2018. Most recently, Trey served as the founding Executive Director of the Richmond Community ToolBank. The process of building a ToolBank from the ground up taught him that action creates clarity, and that the answer is always no unless you ask! Trey lives in Richmond, VA with his wife, three children and a 125-pound bullmastiff named Dakota.

Board of Directors

Charlie Brown, President

Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer

The ToolBank premise - putting tools into the hands of volunteers, is an easy concept for me to understand. Providing efficient access to basic yet crucial resources empowers other non-profit organizations to be more efficient. By keeping it simple, I believe ToolBank will leverage the power of our communities. I look forward to supporting ToolBank’s potential.
