ANA Board Elects Not To Extend Contract of Executive Director Jeff Shevlin

American Numismatic Association President Thomas Hallenbeck announced today that the ANA Board of Governors has elected not to extend the contract of Executive Director Jeff Shevlin.


"After considering the Board's mission and objectives, the Board of Governors concluded that Mr. Shevlin was not the right fit to lead the Association going forward," Hallenbeck said. "The board felt that it was in the Association's best interest to sever our relationship and seek new leadership for the Association."


Rather than extend his contract in June, the Board opted to relieve Mr. Shevlin of his duties.


Hallenbeck said the ANA Board of Governors will discuss a succession plan during a scheduled telephone conference on April 30.
