Transitions at Ford Foundation, council on foundations, mercy services.

Ford Foundation in New York City announced that Luis Ubinas will be its next president, succeeding Susan V. Berresford. Ubinas will be the ninth president in the 70-year history of the Ford Foundation, the second-largest private philanthropy in the United States.

His appointment is the result of a national and international search that began when Berresford announced plans to retire in January, 2008, after 38 years with the institution, the last 12 as president.

Ubinas is a director at McKinsey & Company, where he has worked for the past 18 years, lie leads McKinsey's Media Practice on the West Coast, advising Fortune 100 media, telecommunications and technology companies on major strategic and operational challenges.

Raised in the South Bronx, he attended Harvard College and the Harvard Business School. Currently based in San Francisco, he has worked extensively with companies in both developing and developed countries.


Ubinas has led research on the impact of new technologies on business and society, has worked with traditional media companies responding to the effects of new media, and with emerging technology companies on the introduction of new media services. Much of his work has been long-range in nature, requiring years to conceive, develop and implement.
