WWF-Canada seeks new leader and thanks David Miller
WWF-Canada’s four years under his leadership since 2013 have been a time of significant progress and achievement, not least in building a strong team. Given the high quality of the management personnel, WWF-Canada’s board of directors has invited internal candidates to interview to become the next president and CEO. David will continue to lead WWF-Canada in the interim to ensure as seamless a transition as possible.
Alex Himelfarb, chair of WWF-Canada’s board directors, says:
“The board is proud of the accomplishments made together during the past four years. The organization has a renewed focus on its core mandate: To reverse the decline of wildlife. And our strong team has delivered important advances in conservation in Canada. David is leaving WWF-Canada in a strong position for his successor to lead to new and even greater successes.”
David Miller, WWF-Canada’s outgoing president and CEO, says:
“I am sad to leave such an accomplished team, but the opportunity I have been offered is very close to my heart and impossible to turn down. The strength of WWF-Canada’s staff makes my decision a little easier, because I know that the organization is in good hands.”
