LANHAM, MD. — The Entomological Society of America (ESA) has announced the selection of C. David Gammel, CAE, as its new Executive Director. He replaces Ann Kenworthy, who served as Interim Executive Director in 2010. Gammel was chosen from a field of highly qualified candidates through a nation-wide executive search conducted by Transition Management Consulting, Inc.

Gammel is an experienced association executive with more than 15 years’ experience in association management and association consulting. He was president of High Context Consulting for five years, and before that served the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association and Employee Relocation Council in senior management positions. He is the author of two books and numerous articles on association membership and technology issues.

“David brings a wealth of experience in both association management and technology that will support the society’s strategic goals, including advocacy and member services. His depth of knowledge in membership engagement will serve ESA well as we focus on increased member value and growth,” said ESA President Ernest S. Delfosse. “The Governing Board looks forward to working with David to enhance the Society’s current programs and to continue our growth as the pre-eminent world-wide entomological society.”

“I am very excited to join ESA as Executive Director,” stated Gammel. “This is a great Society with a long tradition, respected publications, strong annual meeting and enthusiastic membership. The Society’s members work on some of the most important scientific issues in the world today and I am honored to support them.”
