Goodwill Industries International Announces Resignation of President and CEO

ROCKVILLE, Md., — The Goodwill Industries International (GII) Board of Directors today announced that Jim Gibbons, president and CEO, will resign after more than ten years of service to pursue new opportunities in social impact investment and entrepreneurialism.

The GII Board will immediately commence a search, with the assistance of an executive search firm, to identify a successor for Mr. Gibbons. Mr. Gibbons has agreed to continue serving in his role as CEO until a replacement is appointed, at which time he will work with the GII Board to ensure an orderly transition.

“We are grateful for all of Jim’s contributions that helped us grow GII’s mission over the past decade, and we appreciate his desire to pursue new opportunities,” said Karla Grazier, chair of GII’s Board of Directors. “At this point, we will work to identify a CEO who will build upon Jim’s successes and lead the organization forward.”

Grazier continued, “During his tenure, Jim led our organization to new heights and helped continue a tradition of strengthening communities.  Importantly, GII is well-positioned to serve its membership as we continue to navigate through changing times and to meet the needs of the communities that we serve.”

“I am humbled to have had the opportunity to serve GII for more than ten years,” said Mr. Gibbons. “The GII team and the network of social entrepreneurs throughout Goodwill® are amazing individuals filled with passion and talent. I am honored to have been a part of such a high-impact network and look forward to working with my successor on a seamless transition of responsibilities.”

Recently in 2017, GII was ranked by consumers as the top brand doing the most good for the world by enso — known for the World Value Index. In 2016, under Mr. Gibbons’ leadership, GII assisted local Goodwill organizations in providing more than 36 million people with workforce training and financial literacy education. In addition, GII has consistently received the Platinum Seal of Approval by GuideStar, an information service that reports on U.S. nonprofit companies.
