Board Of Directors
Team Campbell was founded by Greg & Robin Hoyt in memory of their daughter, Campbell Hoyt, who tragically lost her 5 year battle with cancer and the age of 8. Her strength and courage throughout her illness was inspiring to all that met her.
The “team” consisted of our closest friends and family and very quickly grew into our entire community. Through the power of social media, thousands of people followed Campbell’s story and fought alongside her during her battle with cancer. Seeing Team Campbell t-shirts and hats everywhere we went soon became commonplace. The power of the team was not just in the support for Campbell but also became about raising awareness for all children battling the disease. Fundraisers were held to assist with the growing costs of Campbell’s treatment. Campbell herself, organized a bake sale for her 6th birthday – friends baked and SHE insisted the funds raised be sent to support the children at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center – and raised more than $5000. The power of Cam was off and running!

Greg Hoyt – President & Co-Founder: Along with his wife, Robin, Greg established Team Campbell in 2015 to continue their daughter, Campbell’s legacy of Love, Hope and Progress for families facing a childhood cancer diagnosis. In its first two years, TCF raised more than $250,000; helped dozens of families, funded three research trials and spread awareness across the United States. Greg’s dedication to helping these families will not stop until a cure for childhood cancer is found and children are no longer suffering from long-term treatment side-effects.

Genene Sullivan – Vice President: Genene has over 25 years of experience in operations management. Since 2007, she has worked for JPW Consulting, a change management, training and consulting firm, and is currently their Director of Operations. Previously, she worked for Fairchild Publications, Capital Cities/ABC (now Disney-ABC Television Group), where she spent nearly 15 years working in production, and was the Group Production Director for several trade and consumer magazines. Between these two positions, Genene raised two children with her husband, Mike, while also helping her husband establish his private law practice and real estate development company. Genene has spent much of her life volunteering. While with Fairchild, she launched their Volunteer Initiative Program, which partnered employees with volunteer opportunities with organizations including the Special Olympics, Fresh Air Fund, New York Cares, and the Harriett Tubman Family Living Center. While serving as the Chair of this program, she was introduced to St. Philip’s Academy, a private school in Newark, NJ established to give inner city children access to a high-quality education. Genene became a member of the Board of Trustees, where she served for 8 years in various positions including Chair of the Finance Committee, and member of the Capital Campaign, Strategic Planning, and Development Committees. During that time, St. Philip’s Academy grew from educating a handful of students, to welcoming over 300 students each year.
Over the past 20 years, Genene has also volunteered for many organizations within her community including Somerset Hills School District Board Member, Home School Association, OLPH Church, and the Bernardsville Fire Company as an Administrative Member. Genene was also a Girl Scout Leader for 8 years along with Robin Hoyt. It was during this time that Genene and Robin became great friends, raising their families together. Genene held Campbell Grace for the first time just one day after she was born in May of 2006 and became her Godmother just a few short months later. Campbell brought an incredible amount of joy and love into this world and the news just over 3 years later that Campbell had brain cancer was devastating. Campbell lived on to bravely battled cancer for 5 years like the princess warrior she was, showing everyone what true strength and courage look like in the face of great pain and suffering. She was and always will be an inspiration to all who knew her. Genene currently serves as the Vice President of the Team Campbell Foundation, and hopes to help TCF make a difference in the lives of children battling cancer and their families by continuing to show others the grace and compassion that Campbell exemplified. “No child or family should have to go through this battle alone! We are in it with them, and there for them as much as we can be, until the day Pediatric Cancer is truly curable”.

Becky chooses to serve so that mothers and fathers, sisters and brothers, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins and friends will one day not have to suffer from the pain of losing a loved one. For Cam, who spent more time in hospitals and doctor’s offices than she spent riding bicycles and building sandcastles, we will work to raise awareness, fund research and help those families affected by pediatric cancer.
