Susan Desmond-Hellmann, the chancellor of the University of California, San Francisco, will be next chief executive officer of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, one of the largest philanthropic organizations in the world with a $40 billion endowment.
The AP reports that the foundation has been looking for a CEO since Jeff Raikes announced his retirement in September.
Ross Reynolds talks with Howard G. Buffet, son of financier Warren Buffet, who has recently published a book titled "40 Chances: Finding Hope in a Hungry World," which is about his quest to help those who lack food security all over the world under a tough, self-imposed deadline: 40 years.
Ross Reynolds interviews two prominent Seattle investors about business and politics. Nick Hanauer was the first non-family investor in Amazon. He’s currently a venture capitalist with Second Avenue Partners and a major Democratic donor and activist involved with a variety of causes. Richard Barton is a former Microsoft executive and the founder of the travel website Expedia and the real estate site Zillow. He also supports a number of philanthropic causes, in part through the Barton Family Foundation.
