Dr. David Haworth’s first day on the job as CEO and president of the Morris Animal Foundation began Monday. His duties include overseeing the 62-year-old nonprofit’s efforts to advance health and welfare research that protects, treats and cures companion animals, horses and wildlife worldwide.
Haworth, the former director of global alliances for Pfizer Animal Health, replaced Dr. Patricia N. Olson who led the foundation from 2004 to 2010. He brings a diversity of experiences that include corporate partnership development, veterinary research, nonprofit oversight and clinical practice.
“Morris Animal Foundation has experienced excellent growth over the past few years, and Dr. Haworth’s background and passion for animal health will help to move the organization into its next phase of growth and evolution,” said Mark Carter, chairperson of Morris Animal Foundation’s board of trustees.
