"I am honored to join the distinguished and diverse group of individuals who make up NACD's Fellowship program and who have committed to advancing the highest standards of boardroom leadership," said Winston. "The resources, insights and connections I've made through NACD's Fellowship program will be key assets to the companies I serve, as well as to my professional growth as a director."
Candidates for NACD's Fellowship Program complete a strong foundation course which focuses on topical matters and committee-specific issues, followed by additional NACD education within a 12-month period. NACD Fellows renew their status every year, maintaining and advancing their knowledge with continuous learning and peer-led collaboration.

NACD Fellows represent hundreds of companies and provide a snapshot of the caliber of corporate directors engaged in continuous learning with NACD--the leading organization that identifies, interprets and provides insights and information that boardroom leaders rely upon to apply their wisdom and knowledge and make sound strategic decisions.
With nearly 16 years of executive search experience, Winston has successfully completed searches for board directors, chief executive officers, presidents, chief operating officers, chief financial officers, and a broad range of functional vice presidents, and has placed these executives in start-up firms, small and medium-sized public and private firms, and major corporations.
Prior to his career in executive search, Winston was an owner and chief operating officer for a startup company that provided an outsourced supply chain for perfusionists and hospitals performing cardiac surgery procedures. Before embarking on his corporate career, he spent 20 years serving his country as an officer in the US Marine Corps, where he held numerous flying assignments, served as the chief of global programs for the Special Operations Command, and served on the staff of Marine Weapons and Tactics Squadron One.
