(Jenna) Dorn as its Chief Executive Officer. She joins AAPA on October 31. “Jenna is an experienced CEO with a proven track record of results,” said Robert Wooten, AAPA’s President. “The Board was impressed not only by her broad experience in national non-profits and government, but also with her passion for our mission. We are confident that Jenna will help guide AAPA to even greater achievements.” “It is an honor to have this opportunity to serve the smart, compassionate and innovative professionals who comprise AAPA’s membership,” said Dorn. “I am thrilled to join the top notch AAPA staff team, and look forward to working with the members, Board and staff to make a difference in the health and lives of patients and their families.” Dorn is currently Senior Fellow at Potomac Research Group, which provides Washington policy research and market technical analysis for the investment community. Previously, she was President and CEO of the National Academy of Public Administration, a nonprofit organization chartered by Congress and dedicated to improving the management of government. With nearly 30 years of management experience, Dorn has led multi-billion dollar federal agencies, as well as start-ups and well-established nonprofit organizations. She was appointed by the President of the United States to four senior leadership posts in government. She served as the U.S. Representative on the Board of Directors of the World Bank, Administrator of the Federal Transit Administration, Assistant Secretary for Policy at the Department of Labor and Associate Deputy Secretary of Transportation. Her nonprofit leadership posts include Senior Vice President of the American National Red Cross, President of the National Health Museum, and service on a number of boards. Dorn is a graduate of Oregon State University, and holds a master’s degree in Public Administration from the University of Connecticut. The recruitment process was carefully executed by a search committee chaired by Lawrence Herman, RPA-C, with the assistance of Spencer Stewart, a respected executive recruitment firm. The committee recommended several candidates for consideration by the Board which unanimously selected Dorn. During the recruitment and selection process, AAPA’s work has continued under the direction of its Interim EVP/CEO, James Potter, to whom the Academy’s leadership is grateful.
