SAN FRANCISCO, December 4, 2015—Tim L. Jones has been named interim CEO of San Francisco AIDS Foundation. Formerly national director of operations at Deloitte, Jones brings to the role more than 25 years of leadership experience with complex, global organizations. Jones has been a member of the San Francisco AIDS Foundation board of directors since 2011, serving as chair of both the Fund Development and the Audit Committees.
James Loduca, currently vice president of public affairs and philanthropy and a member of the foundation's leadership team, has been promoted to senior vice president. Loduca has been and will continue to be instrumental in the successful momentum of the agency's many activities, including the public opening of the new Strut center in the Castro by the end of the year, continued success of AIDS/LifeCycle, and the agency's Campaign for Health and Wellness, which has raised $12.6 million of its $15 million goal. His leadership will help to ensure the continuity of foundation initiatives during the transition period.
"We couldn't be more pleased for TJ to step into this role during this exciting time for the foundation, and to have James as a senior advisor to ensure a smooth transition while we search for our next CEO," said Philip Besirof, incoming chair of the board of directors. "TJ's balanced approach, involvement as a board member, and personal connection to our mission and work will bring tremendous value to the agency."
In addition to his board service, Jones is a two-time rider and three-time roadie participant of AIDS/Lifecycle, the foundation's largest annual source of private revenue. Jones will lead the senior executive team of the foundation, ensuring the continued internal support, strength and stability of the organization's expansive programs and client services, while ensuring organizational stability as it searches for a new permanent CEO. His first day in the role will be December 7 to ensure overlap with outgoing CEO Neil Giuliano.
"TJ will be excellent in this role and his calming presence and fresh set of eyes and ears will be valuable during this time of change," added Neil Giuliano, CEO of San Francisco AIDS Foundation. "I'm thrilled for his appointment, and coupled with James's close knowledge of the many strategic imperatives facing the agency in 2016, the foundation is set-up perfectly for a thoughtful, orderly and successful leadership transition."
The search for a permanent CEO is led by global executive search firm Egon Zehnder. The job description is available at http://bit.ly/SFAF-CEO.
