Portland, OR. — Planned Parenthood Columbia Willamette (PPCW) today announced that President and CEO David Greenberg will be leaving the organization, effective June 30.

The board of directors will launch a national search for a new CEO on July 1. The board will appoint an interim CEO to lead the organization during the search process, and will announce the interim appointment prior to June 30.

“The board is deeply grateful to David for his 11 years of service,” said PPCW Board Chair Cara Jacobsen. “The past year has been full of challenges and changes for our organization. After a collaborative assessment of next steps, we believe that this is a natural time for a change in organizational leadership.”

During David’s tenure from 2001-2012, PPCW tripled the number of patients it serves and built a strong education program that now reaches more than 15,000 young people annually. PPCW pioneered online health services, created two vital public policy organizations in Oregon and Washington, and built new health centers in both states to help ensure that women will always have access to the health care they need.
