APM and MPR Board of Directors Appoint a CEO Search Committee

The APM and MPR Board of Directors, consistent with their governance responsibilities, have appointed a CEO Search Committee (CSC) to find the next CEO of APMG. The Board expects this search to take roughly 9 to 12 months to complete, and Jim Dwyer, incoming Board Chair, has agreed to chair the CSC.

The CSC includes 10 Board members who have extensive experience and critical skills that will enable them to evaluate candidates and select a CEO who will guide American Public Media Group to success in the future. These attributes include recent participation in executive searches, experience building and leading diverse, inclusive teams in complex organizations and deep understanding of media/digital transformation, fundraising, community engagement, and the establishment of effective partnerships. The members of the search committee are:

Jim Dwyer, Chair
Wendy Bennett
Mary Brainerd
Ivan Fong
Ian Friendly
Libby Hlavka
Rick King
Nii Quaye
Jean Taylor
Ana Valdez (SCPR representative)

The Committee is evaluating potential executive search firms and will select a partner who can effectively address the business and cultural requirements of this national search. Along with the full Board, the CSC is also defining a process that will incorporate input from a wide array of stakeholders to ensure we understand the most important leadership requirements and competencies of the CEO role in the minds of employees, listeners, donors and the public. We will share more about this process in the coming weeks and the Committee intends to provide regular updates on the process to all stakeholders.
