Jack Haire, former Irish America Business 100 Honoree, will succeed Joseph Cahalan as the new CEO for the Irish humanitarian non-profit Concern Worldwide U.S.

Cahalan and Haire have worked together for the last eight years on the organization’s board.

“Jack brings a wealth of experience to his new role,” Cahalan said. “He is passionate about our work, and is a role model of our values.”

Before becoming the CEO of Parade Media Group in 2009, Haire previously spent 28 years at Time Warner Inc., where he was Executive Vice President of Time Inc. and President of the Fortune/ Money Group.

“I am honored to join Concern Worldwide U.S. as CEO. The work that Concern does is so meaningful and epitomizes what I want to do at this stage of my life,” Haire, whose great-grandparents came to New York from Cork and Donegal during the Famine, said. ♦
