Craig Schaefer, most recently the associate executive director of the National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame, will take over as executive director of the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Greater Fort Worth Affiliate beginning June 17, the organization announced May 9.
Ann Greenhill, who served as Komen Greater Fort Worth’s executive director for the past nine years, and has been with the organization for almost 11 years, will retire in mid-June.
“We are excited about Craig continuing in Ann’s footsteps,” said Joan Katz and Rosanne Rosenthal, co-founders of Susan G. Komen for the Cure Greater Fort Worth Affiliate. “He has a long history of working with the local breast cancer community and his leadership skills will be invaluable to the organization.”
Schaefer previously served for 15 years as executive director of Cancer Care Services. He will represent the Fort Worth Affiliate to the public, policy makers and community organizations; lead organizational development and strategic planning; provide guidance to volunteers and committees; optimize financial performance; build donor relationships; oversee personnel; and impact public policy.
Komen Greater Fort Worth grants funds each year to organizations in the Affiliate’s service area of Tarrant, Parker, Johnson and Hood counties to support breast cancer education, detection, treatment and research.
Schaefer earned a master’s degree in education administration from Central Michigan University and a bachelor’s degree in secondary education from the University of Nebraska.
