NNAAC Director Steps Down to Head Rockefeller Brothers Fund Program

posted on: Oct 14, 2009

ACCESS is saying farewell to Taleb Salhab, director of the National Network for Arab American Communities. Next month he’ll take the helm of the Peace and Security program at the Rockefeller Brothers Fund (RBF) in New York City. Salhab’s duties will include managing the development and direction of the program as well as refining its goals and strategies.

Salhab has spent the last 15 years working to broaden public understanding of Arab Americans and Muslims in the United States. “Taleb’s leadership has been instrumental in expanding NNAAC from nine groups to 21 members in 11 states,” said ACCESS Executive Director Hassan Jaber. “He has helped those organizations empower their communities and build a foundation for a stronger future, not only within the Arab community, but within the U.S.”

“Taleb, with his extensive knowledge and practical experience in engaging the U.S. foreign policy community, public and elected officials, and civil society in the United States and the Middle East, will be tremendously valuable in advancing the strategic direction and impact of the Peace and Security program,” said Betsy Campbell, vice president for programs of the RBF.

While everyone at ACCESS is sorry to see Taleb go, we wish him the best of luck with his new adventure.
