The Society of Interventional Oncology (SIO) has announced that Jena Eberly Stack will assume the role of executive director effective 1 January, 2020. As a certified project management professional through the PMI Institute, Stack brings expertise in strategic development, change management, and association governance, a society press release states.
“I am thrilled to be joining SIO as the new executive director,” Stack comments. “This is such an exciting time for the society and for the field of interventional oncology. I have had the pleasure of getting to know SIO’s board of directors in recent weeks and I know we will continue to accomplish great things for SIO’s members and the industry.”
Stack has worked in association management for the past six years, previously having worked in other non-profit management and education settings. Her association management experience has been focused in healthcare organisations, having served a variety of clinical societies. She is excited to join SIO in this capacity and help further advance the field of interventional oncology.
Cameron Curtis, the current executive director, is leaving SIO to pursue another opportunity. “On behalf of the SIO board of directors, I would like to thank Cameron for her strong leadership,” said board president William Rilling. “We have accomplished a great deal with her energy and guidance and look forward to building on our momentum as Jena assumes executive leadership of SIO.”
“Cameron has served as an exceptional leader and partner of the board, playing an integral role in the evolution and success of the society,” continued Rilling. “Under her leadership, SIO has achieved tremendous success, and we cannot thank her enough for her commitment and service to SIO. Although she will be greatly missed, we wish her all the best in her future endeavours.”
