Warhover resigns from Colorado Health Foundation

This morning President and Chief Executive Officer Anne Warhover announced she will be leaving the Colorado Health Foundation Jan. 2, 2015. Chief Financial Officer Rahn Porter will take over as interim CEO after Warhover's departure. 

"My decision to leave the Foundation after 10 years as CEO has been difficult, and it was only through a long period of self-reflection that I have decided to do so," said Warhover. "I'm proud of what we've accomplished together, but for me I just know it's time for a change. The Foundation, and its work, has been a deeply important part of my life, and I am heartened by the efforts of its staff and board to bring this organization beyond grantmaking and into a space where through its resources and partners it is transforming state culture into one centered on health. I am excited to pass the baton to a new leader who is committed to making Colorado the healthiest state in the nation." 

Warhover was hired in 2004 as president and CEO of the Foundation. Since then, she has been responsible for significant growth in the Foundation's grantmaking portfolio, which increased from $3 million to $100 million annually to Colorado-based nonprofits. In 2006, the Foundation's board adopted Warhover's recommendation for a new vision to make Colorado the healthiest state in the nation. That vision has become a mantra that has since been adopted by the governor and state of Colorado and many partners. In 2011, under Warhover's leadership, the Foundation completed a historic transition in selling its 40 percent equity stake in HCA-HealthONE hospital system, enabling the Foundation to continue its current funding levels for generations to come. Most recently, Warhover has focused the staff on setting strategic targets to better shape the impact of its work over the next several years
