Keith Porter Named Stanley Foundation President
Muscatine, Iowa — The Stanley Foundation Board of Directors has elected Keith Porter to be president and chief executive officer, effective immediately.
In his 24 years at the Stanley Foundation, Porter has served in a number of roles including director of communication, head of media programs, and executive radio producer.
Most recently Porter served as director of policy and outreach where he led the foundation's work on genocide prevention, nuclear material security, and emerging power cooperation. Porter has also served as interim foundation president since the retirement of former president Vlad Sambaiew on January 11.
“Keith brings an outstanding performance record to the presidency," said Richard H. Stanley, chair of the foundation's Board of Directors. "He has demonstrated his commitment to the vision, mission, and value system of the foundation as well as the family values that are embodied in its creation and governance. He will provide effective leadership of our work. I look forward to collaborating with him in the years ahead.”
Porter said he looks forward to building on the work of the 57-year history of the foundation.
“It is an honor to accept this position, and I am excited to lead the organization in its continued success,” Porter said. “The foundation has a solid reputation as a reliable and wise advocate for specific improvements in the international system, and I look forward to building on our remarkable base of talent and resources.”
