Ridgway H White has been appointed CEO of Charles Stewart Mott Foundation after William S White officially retired from the position of chief executive officer.
William S. White will be stepping back from day-to-day operations after nearly five decades at the Foundation but will continue as chairman of the board of trustees.
‘The demands of running a sizable philanthropic organization are increasing every day, and Ridgway brings vigor, energy and insight to the challenges we face in all our areas of interest. He also brings experience.’
‘I’m proud to watch Ridgway contributing to the sector and leading the Mott Foundation. I’m also pleased to say I believe C.S. Mott would recognize today’s Foundation and the work we’re doing as his own. We’ve maintained a focus on our donor’s intent, even as we’ve evolved to remain relevant,’ said William S White.
Ridgway began his career at Mott as an intern in 2002 and was hired as a program assistant two years later. After working his way up through the program ranks, he served as the Foundation’s vice president for special projects and chair of our management working group from 2011 until he became president in January 2015.
