Organization Announcement

To RetireSafe members, supporters and friends:
After more than ten years standing up for America’s seniors, RetireSafe’s President/CEO, Thair Phillips, will himself be retiring.  Thair has worked hard to ensure that our government kept its promises to America’s seniors – from fair Social Security adjustments, to maintaining Medicare benefits. Thair worked tirelessly to be a voice for choice, a champion of the free market and an advocate for reducing our government’s interference in our lives. He worked to make RetireSafe a respected and listened to advocate for older Americans. We thank him for his hard work.
Joining RetireSafe in March as President/CEO will be Mark Gibbons.  Mark brings us over eight years senior management experience as Senior Director of External Programs for the Caregiver Action Network (CAN), a non-profit organization providing education, peer support and resources to family care givers. In this capacity he has worked with and help trained at least a thousand family caregivers at the grassroots level. He has also reached out to the health care and related industries to gain support for CAN programs.  He has also worked for the American Red Cross supporting disaster relief efforts and brings us local government and Hill experience. His U.S. Army experience includes command positions in Iraq, Saudi Arabia and Germany.
We are pleased to announce that Thair will remain in a consultancy role to RetireSafe through June, 2019.  He will assist with the transition by familiarizing Mark with our programs and introducing him to our supporters and suppliers.  We are confident of a smooth transition and a successful future.
Our sincere thanks to Thair and a hardy welcome to Mark!
