Red Cross chooses IRS head as president
by UPI

WASHINGTON - The American Red Cross announced in Washington it has chosen the head of the Internal Revenue Service as its new leader.

The Red Cross board of governors decided Wednesday that IRS Commissioner Mark Everson will take over as president and chief executive of the $6 billion charity next month, The Washington Post reported Thursday.

Everson's appointment coincides with preparations for the upcoming hurricane season during a time when the organization is looking to rebuild its reputation after sharp criticism of its response to Hurricane Katrina and other devastating events.

"I look forward to working with the outstanding volunteers, staff and board during this defining period in the history of the Red Cross," Everson said in a statement.

Red Cross Chairman Bonnie McElveen-Hunter said Everson, who has headed the IRS since 2003, is "a capable and compassionate leader whose proven experience and leadership skills will bring valuable expertise" to the Red Cross.

Everson will be the organization's fifth chief executive in six years.
