The American Humane Association has named Robin Ganzert, Ph.D., president and chief executive officer, effective Oct. 1. Ganzert currently serves as deputy director of philanthropic services at the Pew Charitable Trusts in Washington, D.C.
"Robin brings an unparalleled combination of energy, professional reputation and nonprofit management ability toward achieving our mission to ensure that all children and animals are free from abuse, cruelty and neglect," said David Gies, American Humane Association chairman.
"Her relationships and credentials in driving high-impact philanthropy give American Humane Association a new foundation from which to build on 133 years of achievements. We enthusiastically welcome Robin's leadership."
Ganzert will replace George Casey, interim president and CEO. Casey has guided the organization since the departure of CEO Marie Belew Wheatley in January.
