The Global Electronics Council is announcing a search for a new CEO in response to the departure of its long-time CEO, Nancy Gillis. Carl Smith, GEC’s prior Board Chair and retired CEO of Call2Recycle, is assuming the role of Interim CEO. The Board has established a formal Search Committee and initiated the process of seeking a new CEO. In the meantime, GEC staff will remain focused on implementing its four-year strategic plan approved by the Board in 2021.
In her six years at the organization, Nancy’s knowledge of the technology sector, expertise in procurement, and commitment to sustainability were instrumental in expanding the impact of GEC’s work globally. The Board and staff appreciate her strategic leadership and are excited about the next chapter of her career.
