Wayne Pacelle, HSUS President & CEO

Wayne Pacelle–the President and CEO of The Humane Society Of The United States, the country’s largest animal protection organization, with upwards of 11 million members–discusses what he views as the three most important hallmarks of his tenure as CEO, at the five-year mark; his decision to have HSUS team with Michael Vick for educational efforts on dogfighting, and how that decision (and reaction to it) speaks to the intricacies and challenges of leadership at that level; how animal welfare has evolved as a social movement and how certain organizations have kept pace with that evolution and some, like PETA, may not have; the increasing premium he has placed on cultivating and passing legislation; what sorts of political posts he imagines could lure him away from running HSUS, and more.
