JFK Library Foundation Leader Ends Stormy Tenure

The CEO of the John F. Kennedy Library Foundation resigned Wednesday after a 20-month run marked by staff unrest and numerous departures, writes The Boston Globe. Heather P. Campion's departure follows the recent completion of an operations review commissioned by the board of the nonprofit, which augments federal operation of the Kennedy presidential library.

At least 15 employees, more than a third of those whose posts were funded by the foundation, have resigned or were terminated since Ms. Campion took office in March 2014. Her supporters attributed staff disquietude to her implementation of a board-approved strategic plan that mandates changes at the organization. Ms. Campion did not respond to a Globe request for comment. Foundation officials said she will move to Harvard University's Institute of Politics as a consultant focusing on women's leadership.
