Former DOI chief Jewell takes over as interim CEO as The Nature Conservancy deals with scandal
Former U.S. Interior Secretary and REI board member Sally Jewell has been tapped as interim CEO of The Nature Conservancy, after resignations of top brass and a law firm's critical report on its work environment for women.
Jewell will take her post on Sept. 3. The appointment follows the resignation Friday of Nature Conservancy CEO Mark Tercek, a week after he asked for the resignation of Conservancy president Brian McPeek. Its Caribbean director exited last week.
