Society for Vascular Surgery Executive Director Rebecca Maron has announced her retirement, effective the end of May. She has served in that position for 13 years.

SVS President Dr. Bruce A. Perler noted that Maron will be sorely missed for her leadership skills, judgment and many friendships among the membership.

Tuft and Associates, a professional search firm, will conduct the search along with the SVS Search Committee, led by President-Elect Dr. Ron Fairman. Tuft & Associates is a national executive search firm focusing on associations and nonprofits, particularly medical and health care societies and foundations. The firm was responsible for placing Maron in her position in 2003. Kathleen Henrichs, PhD, will be leading the search and will be assisted by Nancy Puckett with advice from the Tuft team.

When the position description is final it will include information about how to apply for the position. For questions about the search, please contact Tuft & Associates at 312-642-8889 or visit the firm’s website at

Becky is leaving SVS in a strong position and will assist with the transition, Dr. Perler noted. “We sincerely wish her all the best,” he said.
