New Mercy Corps CEO Named To Replace Longtime Leader Who Resigned Under Pressure

Mercy Corps has a new CEO, replacing its longtime leader who resigned last year over the international relief agency’s handling of credible accusations of child abuse against one of its founders.

Tjada D’Oyen McKenna will start Oct. 15, the Portland-based Mercy Corps announced Monday. “Mercy Corps is rightly recognized around the globe for innovative, bold responses to the world’s toughest challenges,” McKenna said in a statement. “It’s an honor to join this organization and in particular this remarkable global team of nearly 6,000 innovative leaders.”
