School Board Director Ralph Navarrete
Ralph Navarrete is a 15-year resident and leader in Methacton School District, where his two children attend school and his wife is an elementary school teacher. He wants Methacton to be the first school district that families consider when moving to Montgomery County, and believes that in order to get there, we need to keep a strong focus on educational excellence, improve the district's fiscal discipline and long-term planning, and strengthen the ties that bind our community to our schools.
Within the Methacton community, Ralph has been a regular volunteer in the schools, including as a WATCH D.O.G.S® dad, and served on the Methacton Strategic Planning Committee in 2016. He has been a coach for local youth baseball and soccer teams, a PIAA and American Legion baseball umpire, and served as President of Methacton United Soccer Club.
Ralph's professional experience is well-suited to driving fiscal improvements in Methacton. He has spent the last 19 years in sales, strategy, and business development roles in the downstream oil and gas industry. In his current role, Ralph actively manages the sales, marketing, and product development for a global chemicals business, and develops and maintains the strategic plans that guide future growth and R&D efforts.
Ralph earned his MBA in Finance and Strategic Management from Villanova University, and his Bachelor's in Chemical Engineering from the University of Delaware.
