The National Constitution Center has named David Eisner, former CEO of the Corporation for National and Community Service, its new president and CEO. He succeeds Linda E. Johnson, a member of the Center’s Board of Trustees, who took over it January after the departure of its last leader.
Eisner apparent has never run a museum or a tourist attraction.
This from the Constitution Center's announcement this morning:
"He was a senior executive at AOL Time Warner and America Online, Inc., where he established and directed the AOL Foundation, the company’s philanthropic arm. At AOL, Eisner founded several of the first online initiatives to foster philanthropy and volunteering, including Network for Good and Helping.org. Prior to that, he was a Senior Vice President at Fleishman-Hilliard International Communications in Washington, D.C. He also previously managed public relations at the Legal Services Corporation. Eisner started his career on Capitol Hill, serving as press secretary for several Members of Congress."
