From our president: Consumer Reports names new president

Marta Tellado, a top executive at the Ford Foundation, is the new president and chief executive officer of Consumer Reports. Tellado most ­recently was vice president of global communications and information management at the Ford Foundation, where she was instrumental in furthering the organization’s mission to advance social justice and human achievement.

Born in Cuba and raised in New Jersey, Tellado began her career at Public Citizen with the consumer advocates Ralph Nader and Joan Claybrook. She also has held top positions at the Aspen Institute and the Partnership for Public Service.
