NEW YORK, Sept. 13, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Board of Directors of GMHC and Dr. Marjorie J. Hill would like to announce that they have mutually decided that it is now an appropriate time for GMHC to identify a new leader and for Dr. Hill to pursue the next chapter in her career. "Leading GMHC during the last several years has truly been an honor, but after more than seven years as GMHC's CEO, longer than any other head of an HIV/AIDS service organization, it is time for me to pursue new opportunities," said Dr. Hill. "I care deeply about GMHC's mission and look forward to giving any help I can to ensure that the transition to new leadership goes smoothly."
"GMHC is most grateful to Dr. Hill for her many years of service not just to our organization but to the issues of prevention, treatment, and advocacy concerning the landscape of HIV and AIDS in this country," said Myron Sulzberger Rolfe, Chair of GMHC's Board of Directors. "We wish her the very best on the next chapter in her long career in public service."
As of September 29, 2013, Dr. Hill will no longer serve as CEO of GMHC. GMHC's Board of Directors is currently identifying potential candidates to serve as its next leader as GMHC faces new issues and challenges in the years ahead. Janet Weinberg, GMHC's Chief Operating Officer, will continue to serve as GMHC's interim CEO.
