The Scoop

  • Executive Director Transition

    Dear SABEW members, Desi and I have the unfortunate duty of informing you that Executive Director Kathleen Graham will be leaving SABEW after almost nine years of exceptional service to business journalists around the world. In her time as our executive director, Kathleen improved every aspect of our organization, strengthened our fiduciary oversight and built a strong foundation to support future growth opportunities. It was inevitable that Kathleen’s success would be noticed by others and indeed it has been. The Securities and Exchange Commission Historical Society (SECHS) offered her an opportunity of a lifetime to be its executive director. Accepting the offer was no easy decision for Kathleen, who has poured her professional heart and soul into SABEW. She asked us to make clear to all of you that working with SABEW has been a wonderful experience for which she will always be grateful. Desi and I would like to extend our gratitude to Kathleen for all that she has done to professionalize and enhance the services and support SABEW provides to its members. We wish her continued success in her career and invite her to remain an associate member of SABEW. She will always be welcome in our society. Transition planning is already underway and Kathleen has generously offered to remain until May 19 to give us plenty of time to make all of the necessary arrangements. Immediately after the conference this week, a search committee will be set up to find our next executive director. We will have time in our board meeting this week to discuss the transition plans and address any questions you may have. If you know of any potential candidates to become SABEW’s next executive director, please have them send a letter of intent and a resume to Regards, Glenn & Desi Read Kathleen’s note to the board of governors regarding her departure.
