Chair, Board of Trustees
Dear friends and supporters of MedShare,
I am pleased to share the news that the MedShare Board of Trustees elected Meridith Rentz to become MedShare’s CEO
effective September 1, 2011. The election of Meridith represents the culmination of a one year process to determine A.B.
A.B. determined last year that he’d like to step out of the CEO role and move on to his next act of social entrepreneurship.
While tough to imagine MedShare without him, we are excited at the prospect of what new leadership will bring. Meridith’s
experience leading high quality, innovative programs of the geographic breath and scale that MedShare aspires to will
support the significant growth and expansion of our own services that is underway.
Meridith comes to MedShare from her role as Chief Operating Officer for Points of Light Institute, a national
nonprofit that is redefining civic engagement for the 21st century. Previously, Meridith worked for Emory
Internal Medicine and Deloitte Consulting’s Healthcare Practice. Meridith is an alum of both the Rollins
School of Public Health and the Goizueta Business School at Emory University, where she received her
MPH and MBA degrees as a Woodruff Fellow. Her BA is in Economics, which she received from the
University of North Carolina as a Morehead Scholar. Meridith is married to Dean Baker and enjoys
trying to keep up with three very active and extremely inquisitive sons.
We invite you to join us in welcoming Meridith and also in thanking A.B. for his inspiring leadership.
You can share your thoughts with both of them on MedShare’s Facebook wall or via twitter,
@MedShare and @mrentz.
