Americares Announces New President and CEO
Beginning on March 14th, Americares Executive Vice President and Chief Development Officer, Christine Squires, will become Americares president and CEO.
Squires has spent over 20 years championing humanitarian causes and has held numerous senior leadership roles. Prior to joining Americares in 2016, she served as chief operating officer for Physicians for Human Rights, where she oversaw global fundraising, strategic planning, human resources, information technology and $8.5 million budget. Squires also served as managing director of development and outreach for Human Rights Watch and spent 10 years as vice president of marketing at UNICEF USA.
The Board unanimously elected Squires because she has the experience and skills to successfully lead the organization. The president and CEO has oversight of all Americares operations worldwide, including a staff of more than 500 in the United States, Colombia, El Salvador, Haiti, India, Liberia, Malawi, the Philippines and Tanzania.
After six years of leadership as current president and CEO, Michael Nyenhuis will be leaving to become president and CEO of UNICEF USA.
