NSC Names New President and CEO

The National Safety Council announced on June 5 that Janet P. Froetscher, president and CEO of United Way of Metropolitan Chicago, has been selected as its new president and chief executive officer. Froetscher replaces former NSC President and CEO Alan C. McMillan, who retired in February.

According to Joseph J. Ucciferro, Chairman of NSC's Board of Directors, Froetscher brings strong professional experience in nonprofit strategic operations, civic development, and banking and finance to the NSC leadership position she will assume on June 30.

Ucciferro, who is President and CEO of Philadelphia-based Day & Zimmermann's Commercial and Public Sector Businesses, praised Froetscher’s professional achievements and impressive track record in establishing, executing, implementing, and integrating mission-driven strategic and operational goals.

"The Search Committee selected Janet because of her extraordinary leadership and strategic abilities, relevant success in transforming a significant nonprofit, experience in fundraising, and demonstrated success in developing successful partnerships which have led to enhanced mission delivery," Ucciferro said. "Most significant, however, is Janet's desire to 'make a difference,' which is exactly what we on the Search Committee were looking for."

As head of one of the nation's major United Ways, Froetscher, 48, led the merger of 54 United Ways into one metropolitan system. Critical initiatives conducted under Froetscher's tenure at United Way include substantially increasing community investment in programs that help people become self-sufficient, and the coordination of health and human services in support of an estimated 7,000 Hurricane Katrina evacuees.

Last month Froetscher was named by Crain's Chicago Business as one of 20 "Women to Watch." She was also recognized by the publication in 2004 and 1996 as one of "Chicago's Most Influential Women." Froetscher currently serves on several boards including that of the Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE).
