The Humane Society of the United States has welcomed J. Elizabeth Bradham to its board of directors. A well-known advocate for animals, Bradham’s extensive nonprofit involvement and leadership will be an asset to the Humane Society of the United States and its mission to fight for all animals.
“Elizabeth Bradham is a known leader in the animal welfare community. Her dedication and experience makes her a natural addition, and we are looking forward to working together,” says Kitty Block, acting president and CEO. Mrs. Bradham previously served for 12 years on the ASPCA board of directors, including those in which she served as vice chair. She has also served as chair of the Charleston Animal Society, and helped lead Charleston County to no-kill status, which it has maintained for the last five years. She currently serves as a member of the board of directors of Project Chimps, a Georgia-based sanctuary for former research chimpanzees.
Mrs. Bradham’s nonprofit involvement has not been limited to animal causes. She presently serves as a member of the board of directors of the Coastal Community Foundation, and previously served as president of the Gibbes Museum, the Preservation Society of Charleston and Social Venture Partners Charleston. She also played a critical role in the establishment of the O’Gorman Library and Harlem Academy, both educational institutions benefitting underserved students in New York.
Mrs. Bradham began her career in investment banking at Salomon Brothers Inc, worked in the Mergers and Acquisition Group at S.G. Warburg, and was a partner at Rothschild Inc. from 1995 to 2005. She graduated from Princeton University with an A.B. cum laude, and earned an M.B.A. from Harvard University. She lives in Charleston, South Carolina, with her five rescued dogs and her husband.
