Be The Match CEO Steps Down

CFO and chief of staff Amy Ronneberg was named acting CEO while the organization hunts for a new leader.

Bone-marrow transplant nonprofit Be The Match on Tuesday announced that CEO C. Randal Mills is stepping down “for personal reasons.”

CFO and chief of staff Amy Ronneberg, who spoke on TCB‘s CFO panel last year, will become acting CEO as the organization hunts for a new leader. The nonprofit didn’t offer any other details on Mills’ departure. He joined Be The Match in May 2017, succeeding longtime CEO Dr. Jeffrey Chell.

Before taking the job with Be The Match, Mills had a three-year stint as the head of California’s stem cell agency, known as the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine.

In 2018, the organization logged $417.6 million in annual revenue. Most of the money — nearly $350 million — came from “search and procurement fees,” according to the nonprofit’s 2018 report.
