GenYouth, the national nonprofit organization, announced it appointed Ann Marie Krautheim as CEO.

Krautheim, who joined the company in 2012, has been president and chief wellness officer for the past decade. She succeeds Alexis Glick.

Krautheim will lead the company’s strategic vision, partnerships and programs to support its mission of creating healthier school communities for kids through a variety of programs.

In particular, hunger and food insecurity are causes that are near and dear to the hearts of America’s dairy farmers, and the ongoing work of GENYOUth to end student hunger is of growing importance,” added O’Brien.
