Heifer foundation names new president and CEO.

The board of trustees of the Heifer Foundation has named Domingo Barrios of Houston as the new president and chief executive officer of the Little Rock nonprofit, which manages an endowment to support the work of Heifer International.

"The Board of Trustees and the staff of Heifer Foundation are very excited about having Domingo Barrios as our new president and CEO," Carol Brown, chair of the foundation board, said in a press release. "Through a deliberate, careful process the board has selected a talented, dynamic individual with a diverse background in the nonprofit sector. His leadership skills, coupled with a passion and commitment for helping others, make him an ideal fit to lead Heifer Foundation."

Barrios has more than 20 years of experience working in the nonprofit sector as well as having served on the boards of a number of organizations, the release said. He replaces Janet K. Ginn, who stepped down in May 2009 amid allegations of copyright infringement and plagiarism. Chief Financial Officer Ardyth Neill had been serving as acting chief of the foundation.

Born in 1960 in Colon, Panama, Barrios immigrated to the United States in 1978. He earned a bachelor of science degree from Creighton University and master of science in health administration from the University of Colorado. He most recently founded and was president of The Nonprofit Coach LLC, a private business that worked with nonprofit executives to maximize the potential of their organizations. Previously, he was vice president of community investing from 2006-08 for the Greater Houston Community Foundation and from 2000-06 was grant officer for the Houston Endowment Inc.
