Scott Hunt will retire next January after 25 years as CEO of the Endocrine Society, Chevy Chase, Md.
The society has not yet named a firm to assist in the search for a successor.
Under Hunt, the society expanded its publication base, added educational programs, advocacy and public outreach efforts, expanded its international reach, and most recently created ENDOExpo, a new exhibition design. Washington Business Journal named the society to its top-50 associations list.
Since Hunt began as CEO in 1988, the society's:
- revenue increased from $1.6 million to $30 million;
- membership increased from 5,800 to 16,200, in more than 100 countries;
- ENDO attendance grew from 4,100 to 9,100;
- staff increased from four to 90 employees; and
- created the Hormone Health Network, a public education program.
In 2007, The American Medical Association honored Hunt with the Medical Executive Meritorious Achievement Award, given to a medical association executive who demonstrates exceptional service and contributions to the goals and ideals of the medical profession.
“There is some loss in closing this chapter of my life, but immense satisfaction as well. The society has come so far, its future is unlimited, and it is poised for its next leap,” Hunt said.
Hunt was the volunteer president of the Council of Engineering and Scientific Society Executives from 2007 to 2008, and served on its board from 2003-2009.
Before the Endocrine Society, he was VP at the American Association for Clinical Chemistry. Details: www.endo-society.org.
