New American Red Cross president selected

The American Red Cross selected Mark Everson to be its new president, as the charity restructures itself after intense criticism over its response to Hurricane Katrina.

The Red Cross had been led by an interim president, Jack McGuire, since December 2005, when Marsha Evans resigned because of tension with the charity's board of governors. Her resignation coincided with U.S. congressional hearings attacking the Red Cross's uneven performance in Katrina's aftermath.

Everson, who will take the Red Cross post on May 29, has served as IRS commissioner since May 2003. He previously was a vice president of SC International, a $2 billion (EUR1.5 billion) food services company
