WFH Appoints New CEO

On February 11, 2008, the World Federation of Hemophilia (WFH) in Montreal, Canada, announced the appointment of Claudia Black as its new Chief Executive Officer. Black had been serving as interim CEO since September 2007.

Black has been employed by WFH since 1996. Named Director of Programs in 1999, she expanded the department, which now reaches 97 countries across the globe. She helped develop WFH’s model for national program planning used in its national hemophilia care development programs. Black also helped operationalize the Global Alliance for Progress, which was launched in 2003.

“Ms. Black brings a wealth of experience and long-standing involvement with the bleeding disorders community to the position of CEO,” said Mark Skinner, WFH President.

Black earned a bachelor of arts degree in psychology from Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario. She holds a graduate degree in management from the University of Ottawa.
