In a move that will surprise no one, a high-ranking official from the FDA Center for Tobacco Products (CTP) will replace Robin Koval as president and CEO of the anti-nicotine organization Truth Initiative. Truth, a private non-profit company, already works closely with CTP and other government agencies.
Kathleen Crosby, the current director of the CTP Office of Health Communication and Education, will take over at Truth in October. Like outgoing CEO Koval, Crosby worked for years in the advertising industry before her stint at the FDA.
