NPR Board Welcomes Four New Directors

Four new members have joined the NPR Board of Directors: public members Fabiola Arredondo, managing partner of the private investment firm Siempre Holdings, and Chris Boskin, a media consultant; Kerry Swanson, Station Manager of Northwest Public Radio. They are joined by Howard Wollner, the new chairman of the NPR Foundation’s Board of Trustees and former senior VP of Starbucks Coffee Company. The new members were elected or confirmed to three-year terms on the Board by NPR member stations as part of the Board’s regular elections, and inducted at the Board’s November meeting. Also joining the Investment Committee of the Board is NPR Foundation Trustee John Buoymaster, Chairman and Managing Director of Hall Capital Partners, LLC.

The 17-member NPR Board of Directors is comprised of 10 NPR member station managers (elected by their fellow Member Stations); five public members (elected by the Board and confirmed by member stations); the chairman  of the NPR Foundation; and the president and CEO of NPR. The Board – chaired by Kit Jensen, Chief Operating Officer of ideastream in Cleveland, Ohio – guides the direction of NPR by setting policies and overall strategy, providing financial oversight and monitoring performance.
