BRIDGEPORT, Conn. -- The Coast Guard Foundation, a nonprofit organization committed to the education and welfare of all Coast Guard members and their families, recently appointed Susan Ludwig of Bridgeport as its new president.
Ludwig, the foundation's regional director of philanthropy, will replace Anne B. Brengle as president. Ludwig will assume her new position in January after Brengle's retirement this month.
“We welcome Susan to her new role as president. She is a successful leader with a strong record of strategic, operational and commercial accomplishments,” said Will Jenkins, Coast Guard Foundation board chairman.
With 10 years of nonprofit fundraising and administration work, coupled with two decades of experience working in corporate sales and product management, Ludwig is well-positioned to lead the organization through a nationwide effort to increase awareness for the Coast Guard.
Ludwig joined the foundation staff in 2013 as the primary fundraiser and relationship manager for programs and investors in the Northeast region of the country.
“Having traveled throughout New York, New England and many of the Coast Guard communities across our nation over the last three years, I have been inspired by the deep devotion and commitment to honor, respect and duty of the Coast Guard members and families that I’ve met,” said Ludwig. “As a civilian-based organization, we have a great opportunity to make a difference for the members of the Coast Guard and I look forward to leading the Coast Guard Foundation to new heights.”
