Devon resident Howard M. Nathan is retiring as president and CEO of the Gift of Life Donor Program in January. His career spanned four decades of leading the Philadelphia-based nonprofit, writes John George for the Philadelphia Business Journal.

Nathan grew Gift of Life into one of the nation’s largest organ procurement organizations. Thanks to his dedicated work, it has led the nation in the most organ donors for the past 13 years.

“Howard has dedicated his life and career to the Gift of Life Donor Program and its critical mission of saving lives,” said Barbara Wadsworth, chairman of its governing board.

Despite this career decision, Nathan will continue his involvement with the organization as executive director of its Transplant Foundation.

“Never could I imagine all that we would accomplish at Gift of Life when I began here in 1978 as one of three employees,” said Nathan. “I am proud and humbled to have served alongside dedicated leadership, hospital partners, volunteers, and our staff of now more than 270 extraordinary professionals who work tirelessly every day, 24/7, to save lives.”
