STAMFORD, Conn. -- Curt Welling, retired president and CEO of Stamford's AmeriCares, is leaving the nonprofit group to join the faculty at Dartmouth's Tuck School of Business.
Welling is a senior fellow in the Center for Global Business and Government and the Center for Business & Society. The 64-year-old Welling has left AmeriCares and assumed the joint appointments Jan. 1.
“We are thrilled to welcome Curt Welling to Tuck,” said Matthew Slaughter, faculty director of the Center for Global Business and Government and associate dean of faculty at Tuck. “His many accomplishments, both at AmeriCares and earlier in his career in finance, have been broad and long-lasting. Our students will benefit greatly from his experience and insight into leading complex, global organizations.”
During his 11 years with AmeriCares, Welling oversaw the distribution of $9 billion in aid worldwide, a press release said. Under Welling's leadership, AmeriCares became the world’s leading organization for delivering donated medicines and medical supplies, and launched multi-year relief efforts for several major disasters including Hurricane Katrina, the Japan earthquake and tsunami, the Haiti earthquake and the Southeast Asia tsunami.
“I hope to share experience in global health, disaster relief, as well as in business and capital markets, with our next generation of leaders striving to solve the world’s most pressing problems,” Welling said. “I am excited to join the exceptional team at Tuck in pursuing new approaches to global issues.”
After an international search was launched in April, Michael J. Nyenhuis was selected to succeed Welling as the new president and chief executive officer of AmeriCares.
