WASHINGTON, D.C.—The Humane Society of the United States has welcomed back Suzy Welch, a business executive, bestselling author, TV correspondent and lifelong advocate for animals, to its board of directors.
Author of 10-10-10: A Life-Transforming Idea and co-author of The Real-Life MBA and Winning, Welch received her undergraduate degree and MBA from Harvard University. Over the course of her career, she worked as a consultant at Bain & Company, written for O, The Oprah Magazine, and appeared as a contributor on NBC’s The Today Show and CNBC’s Power Lunch. She currently serves as chair of Quadio, a social media platform for college creatives, and the digital home services giant ANGI.
During her decades of advocacy, Welch has sought to heighten awareness of the faith-based case for compassion toward animals. She has previously served on the HSUS board and chaired the organization’s annual New York City gala in 2017. “It is an honor—and honestly, a joy—to be returning to what is, very simply, the single most effective animal rights organization in the world,” Welch said.
Marsha Perelman, chair of the HSUS board nominating committee, lauded Welch for her skill in bringing the dialogue about animals to new communities. “Suzy Welch is well known for her intellect, energy and keen eye for finding the most strategic path to success,” she said. “Once again, her insight will be invaluable to the organization.”
Welch is the mother of four children and lives in New York City and the Hudson Valley with her rescue animals, Happy, Miley and Shino.
