News From AWMH

Welcome our New Executive Director, Peter Delgrosso!

JANUARY 19, 2022

As All Within My Hands enters year five, we are taking steps to bring in fresh perspectives and new skills to our Board of Directors, including changes at the executive level. We are pleased to announce the appointment of Peter Delgrosso as Executive Director to the Foundation. Pete has served on AWMH Advisory Board since 2018 and is focused on the future of the Foundation.

“All Within My Hands is an incredible organization reflecting the charitable vision of one of the greatest bands in the world, and I am incredibly honored and humbled to be named Executive Director and to the Board. I’ve seen firsthand the huge impact the Foundation has made across its Metallica Scholars program to promote workforce education, the fight against hunger, and numerous other local critical services, including disaster relief due to wildfires, COVID, and hurricanes. Ed Frank and the entire team have done an incredible job, and I am looking forward to following in their footsteps.”

Since the mid-’90s, Pete has been operating and investing in a wide range of public and private technology-related businesses. Throughout his career, he fostered a vast network of relationships across technology, sports, entertainment, consumer businesses, venture capital, and private equity. Pete is a founding and managing partner of Bryant Stibel, a firm Pete and his partners founded with Kobe Bryant in 2013 that has done over 200 venture and private-equity investments.

In addition to his current position on the AWMH Board, Pete is also an Advisory Board member for The Los Angeles Sports and Entertainment Commission, a group that brings the largest sports and entertainment events to Los Angeles. He also sits on the Board of LSTN Sound Company, a socially conscious music company that has helped over 50,000 individuals receive the gift of hearing for the first time. Originally from Connecticut, Pete now lives in the Los Angeles area with his family.

Executive Director Emeritus, Dr. Ed Frank, whose five-year leadership saw the formation of the Metallica’s Scholars Initiative among other AWMH milestones, will remain a voting member of the Board. We are also welcoming Paul Donahue, long-time AWMH Advisory Board member, to the Board of Directors. Paul Donahue is Managing Partner of Black Squirrel Partners, a content and growth equity platform backed by Metallica. Prior to Black Squirrel, Paul enjoyed a 32-year career at Morgan Stanley, where he remains a Senior Advisor.

We are encouraged by the leadership and commitment to the mission each person brings to AWMH and look forward to what’s to come!
