DeBoskey Resigns as ADL Director

June 14, 2010, Denver….The Anti-Defamation League today announced the resignation of Mountain States Regional Director Bruce H. DeBoskey, effective August 15, 2010.

DeBoskey has led the Mountain States Region since February, 2002.  During that time, he was instrumental in launching ADL’s successful No Place for Hate® initiative in Colorado and Wyoming schools, establishing a satellite office in Boulder, and working with the US Air Force Academy to ensure religious respect among cadets and young officers in the Air Force.  He has been a visible and strong presence in the region, speaking out against hatred and bigotry of all kinds, and supporting religious liberty and a firm separation of church and state.  DeBoskey also coordinated a year-long process to develop and implement a strategic plan, which will insure that ADL’s regional efforts remain strong for years to come.

In a letter sent today to the Mountain States Regional Board, DeBoskey said “I’m truly excited about the future of ADL’s Mountain States Region and am filled with enduring gratitude for the opportunity I have had to lead ADL over most of the last decade.”

ADL Regional Board Chair Stuart Pack said “Bruce has been a dynamic and visionary leader who has done an extraordinary job guiding ADL through challenging times and important issues. We are grateful for his leadership and wish him all the best in his next endeavor.”

Prior to coming to ADL, DeBoskey was a well-known Denver civil trial lawyer, often taking on groundbreaking cases to advance important causes.  Following ADL, he will open a consulting practice in philanthropic advising, helping businesses, foundations and families organize, strategize and maximize the impact of their philanthropic efforts.
