> transitions like the one we’re facing. She is sympathetic to our goals 
> and values, and also has some experience with collaborative projects.
> Sue will be responsible for assessing and improving all aspects of the 
> Foundation’s operations. This means she’ll be taking a look at how we do 
> things today –everything from staffing to fundraising to financial 
> controls– and recommending improvements.
> Sue comes to us from CBC.CA, the website of Canada’s national public 
> broadcaster, and that country’s largest and most popular news site. 
> Under her leadership as Senior Director there, CBC.CA more than doubled 
> its audience size, and won dozens of international awards. Prior to 
> running CBC.CA, she was a journalist for 10 years, writing for magazines 
> and newspapers, and making documentaries and talk programming for media 
> companies such as the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, the British 
> Broadcasting Corporation and National Public Radio.
> Please join me in welcoming her.
