Colorado Health Foundation picks new CEO

The Colorado Health Foundation Board of Directors has selected Karen McNeil-Miller as its next president and chief executive officer. Currently the president of the Kate B. Reynolds Charitable Trust in Winston-Salem, N.C., McNeil-Miller will assume her role on Sept. 1, 2015.

Under her leadership, the Trust developed and launched Healthy Places NC — a decade-long, $100 million initiative to improve the health of 10 to 12 of the state’s low-income, rural communities. The Trust’s health improvement work in rural communities, as well as its work to help residents access health insurance through the Affordable Care Act and Medicaid expansion, has garnered national attention from philanthropic peers, the Federal Office of Rural Health and health care leaders.

McNeil-Miller is active within the nonprofit community, serving as a board member for many organizations including Leadership Winston-Salem, North Carolina Center for Public Policy Research, North Carolina Foundation for Advanced Health Programs, North Carolina Institute of Medicine, Novant Health, Nurse Family Partnership State Advisory Council, Southeastern Council on Foundations, United Way of Forsyth County, and University of North Carolina at Greensboro. She received her bachelor’s and master’s degree from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro and her doctorate from Vanderbilt University.

McNeil-Miller will take over from Porter, who has been serving in the interim role since January 2015 when prior CEO Anne Warhover left the Foundation after ten years’ leadership. McNeil-Miller and Porter will spend time over the next few months preparing for the transition.
