Pacelle Named to Prestigious NonProfit Times’ Power and Influence Top 50
The NonProfit Times named HSUS President and CEO, Wayne Pacelle as one of 2013’s Top 50 executives as measured by “power and influence” for the third time since 2008. The list recognizes and celebrates executives who encourage the power of great ideas, and are working to advance and shape the nonprofit sector.
Selected from a pool of more than 200 nominees, Pacelle was cited for his leadership of a “great organization” and his vigorous defense of the nonprofit industry.
According to the NonProfit Times, “Pacelle is fighting back against the shadowy individuals who use nonprofits as a cloak to attack the sector with half-truths and in some cases straight-out lies. Along with running a great organization, he is the poster executive for attacks by agri-business and others who won’t put their names behind their smear campaigns. He still wins most of the fights.”
Pacelle will be honored during the annual NonProfit Times Power and Influence Top 50 Gala in Washington, D.C. among prestigious honorees including Bill Gates (Gates Foundation), Brian Gallagher (United Way Worldwide), Neil Nicoll (YMCA of the USA) and other luminaries of the nonprofit world.
