January 17, 2012

Statement from Rick Leach, president and CEO,

Washington, DC — On behalf of World Food Program USA and our board of directors, I congratulate Ambassador Ertharin Cousin on her appointment as Executive Director of the U.N. World Food Program.

Ambassador Cousin brings the vision, commitment and energy required to unite the international community around solutions to global hunger. With her decades of experience in national and international corporate, non-profit and government leadership, I am certain that she will effectively engage both the public and private sectors to help lift those in need from hunger and extreme poverty. In her service as U.S. Ambassador and Permanent Representative to the United Nations Agencies for Food and Agriculture in Rome, Ambassador Cousin has proven her deep knowledge of food security policy and her commitment to fighting world hunger.

Ambassador Cousin will be an effective and innovative leader of WFP and we are looking forward to working with her in the fight against hunger.
