ING Founder and CEO Transitions After 20 Years of Service

Dear friends and supporters:After 20 years of dedicated leadership at ING, our founding president and CEO, Maha Elgenaidi will be transitioning to a new role on the board of trustees where she will lead the creation of an endowment for the organization.As many of you know, Maha has dedicated most of her professional life exclusively to ING. She founded the organization in 1993 to address the growing misconceptions about Islam and Muslims in the media and general public that increased as a result of political events and issues during and after the first Gulf War.Her decision to transition stems from her interests in furthering her studies in religion as she pursues a graduate degree at Stanford University.

We are deeply grateful to her for her 20 years of service and visionary leadership that has made ING an important institution in the country with 22 affiliates that carry out our mission throughout the country.
