In recent years the institution has struggled to retain a CEO, with the most recent departure being Fay Booker who resigned in September 2018 citing personal reasons. She had been the fourth CEO to leave since 2015.

In March, 2015, Ken Doleman left the position after taking over from then-acting president and CEO Bill Nicholls and serving for two years.

He was replaced by Geoff Grodecki in May 2016. Grodecki soon stepped down on Oct. 7, 2016 after serving for less than a year as CEO.

Bill Snell was announced as interim CEO and president following Bookers’s departure.
