Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) — George Soros’ Open Society Foundations announced a leadership change Monday with its president Mark Malloch-Brown stepping down in June. He will be replaced by a senior leader, Binaifer Nowrojee who will be the first woman from the global south to lead OSF. Soros, the billionaire investor, said that when he started the foundations decades ago, he hoped its work would be global in scope. Nowrojee is Kenyan from an Indian family. She was OSF’s vice president of programs and was part of a small senior leadership team overseeing an ongoing transition at the foundations. That’s included one of George Soros’ son, Alex Soros, becoming the chair of the board.
