Vitamin Angels has announced the appointment of Jim Hamilton as chair of Vitamin Angels’ Board of Directors. Hamilton’s strong background in the natural products industry, excellent C-suite level connections, extensive leadership experience and passion for serving vulnerable communities has well-equipped him for this role, according to the organization.
“After 10 years of service on our Board, we are thrilled to have Jim as our new chair,” said Howard Schiffer, Vitamin Angels founder & president. “The vote on Jim assuming the Chair role was unanimous—a strong endorsement of his support by the Board!”
Hamilton (pictured left) succeeds Michelle Goolsby, who has retired as Board chair after nine years of service. During her time as Board Chair, Goolsby worked to recruit top talent, bring in diversity and set up a well-functioning committee structure. Most importantly, she was effective in moving the Board forward so they could fully support the growth of Vitamin Angels during a dynamic time.
“To say we're sad to see Michelle step down from her role as Board chair would be a vast understatement,” said Schiffer. “Michelle has helped us navigate through so many trying times and tough decisions over the years. She has the special ability to see through complex situations and help us arrive at simple and sensible solutions. Thank you, Michelle, for your outstanding work and contributions to our organization.”
