New CEO Begins At Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation

“…[Susan] Desmond-Hellmann is the third CEO in the foundation’s history and the first to have a track record in global health. While she is at pains to dampen any speculation that her appointment signals any strategic shift in the direction of the foundation, there is an expectation that Desmond-Hellmann will have more direct input into the foundation’s major global health and global development programs, led by Trevor Mundel and Chris Elias respectively, than has previously been the case…” (Holmes, 4/26).
