The Social Investment Forum announced last week that Timothy Smith has been elected president of the organization, replacing David Berge, who is stepping down.
The Social Investment Forum is the national trade association for the social investment industry with more than 500 members, including mutual fund companies, financial planners, banks, research companies, foundations and community investing institutions.
The position of president of the not-for-profit organization is not full-time and Smith will continue to serve as senior VP and director of socially responsible investing for Walden Asset Management, where he has worked since 2000.
Prior to joining Walden, Smith was with the Interfaith Center on Corporate Responsibility for 29 years, where he was active in community development investing and shareholder advocacy.
Smith currently serves on the board of the Responsible Business Association of Massachusetts and Shared Interest, a South Africa development fund.
