Randy Hurban, CEO of the Lowell nonprofit The First Tee of Northwest Arkansas, is leaving the organization.

In a note to supporters on June 9, Hurban said he will transition from the CEO role at the end of the summer. He will remain on the nonprofit’s board of directors.

Hurban, 62, took the job four years ago. Before that, he was CEO of Moxy Ox, a printing business in Springdale. He also held executive leadership positions for Georgia Pacific, Johnson & Johnson and Novartis.

“We’ve been able to make a real difference in the lives of children and families all across our community by focusing on building game changers in life through the game of golf,” Hurban wrote.

The First Tee is a national youth development organization that introduces kids to the game of golf and its inherent values.

Hurban said the search for the next chief executive is underway. Sam’s Club executive Tony Katzer is the Northwest Arkansas affiliate’s board chairman.
