Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Names Richard Besser as President and Chief Executive Officer

Dr. Richard Besser, former acting director for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and ABC News' current Chief Health and Medical Editor, has been named President and Chief Executive Officer of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. Dr. Besser will succeed Dr. Risa Lavizzo-Mourey, who has led the $10 billion foundation for the last 14 years. During her tenure, the foundation has focused its programmatic efforts on broad and important topics such as reducing childhood obesity, promoting health equity, expanding health coverage, and building a Culture of Health in America. Dr. Besser came to ABC News from the CDC where he served as director of the Coordinating Office for Terrorism Preparedness and Emergency Response. In that role he was responsible for all the CDC's public health emergency preparedness and emergency response activities. He also served as acting director for the CDC from January to June 2009, during which time he led the CDC's response to the H1N1 influenza pandemic. There will be a period of transition during which time Dr. Lavizzo-Mourey will remain President and CEO of the Foundation. The exact date of the handoff is expected to be in April. The search was successfully conducted by the RWJF Board and the leading global executive search firm KornFerry.
