NHF Announces New Interim CEO
The National Hemophilia Foundation (NHF) Board of Directors is pleased to announce the appointment of Dawn Rotellini as Interim Chief Executive Officer of NHF effective December 5, 2019. As the Board of Directors CEO search committee continues the process to identify a long-term CEO to lead the foundation through its next growth phase, the Board trusts in Rotellini’s leadership to help guide NHF through this transition.
Rotellini has been a leader in the bleeding disorders community for many years. As a parent of a son with hemophilia, she founded the Rocky Mountain Hemophilia & Bleeding Disorders Association in Bozeman, Montana, served as its Executive Director, and began their Family Camp. After moving to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, she worked for the American Diabetes Association (ADA) as an Area Manager. Concurrently, she served as a board member for the Hemophilia Center of Western Pennsylvania for six years. Rotellini left the ADA for a position as the Executive Director of the Western Pennsylvania Chapter of NHF in Pittsburgh, where she became actively involved with Camp Hot to Clot and eventually became the Director. She has been with the National Hemophilia Foundation for 11 years and was promoted to the Senior Vice President of Program Development and eventually to the Chief Operating Officer of NHF, which was her most recent role. Rotellini also serves on the Board of Directors for the World Federation of Hemophilia.
Brian Andrew, NHF’s Board Chair said, “The Board has confidence in Dawn’s leadership through this transition as well as the entire senior management team. Together with all of NHF’s staff they will continue to serve the mission of the organization.”
We will continue to move NHF forward and work toward finding the best possible candidate to lead the Foundation.
