Yesterday, President Clinton reconfirmed his commitment to the ongoing work of the Clinton Foundation, letting staff know he had assumed the role of Chair of the Board:
"This has been my life for the last 16 years and I want to send a clear signal that weâ€™re serious about continuing our work which, I believe, is now more important than ever."
Along with this exciting news, we wanted to share with our community of dedicated supporters some additional leadership changes at the Clinton Foundation:
* Donna Shalala has stepped down as President and CEO of the Foundation and joined the Board.
* Bruce Lindsey, the previous Chair, will continue to be a full-time member of the Board and has become Counselor to the Chair.
* The Board has named Kevin Thurm, who has served as Chief Operating Officer since 2015, as Acting CEO.
Donna took a leave of absence from the University of Miami in order to join the Foundation in the summer of 2015. In her time with the Foundation, Donna helped lead us into a stronger position and enhanced the impact of our work. This year, we have expanded our domestic health work to San Diego (clintonfoundation.us12.list-manage2.com/track/click
, convened a new class of Presidential Leadership Scholars (clintonfoundation.us12.list-manage.com/track/click
