David Yarnold is a great leader who has a ridiculously challenging job. In his short tenure at Audubon he has revitalized the organization, attracted new talent, and given the organization direction and focus.
[Full disclosure, i know David and consult for Audubon, but these are my personal views.]
I am not a raging fan of most CEOs in the environmental sector -- i find them to be extraordinarily risk-averse, politically naive and not especially inspiring. David is a very rare exception.
For those who fixate on salaries, remember that Audubon is a complex $80 million organization. David is worth every penny and then some. It's kind of silly to focus on CEO salaries, when there are so many more meaningful measures of an organization's financial stewardship.
Our birds are so much better off for David being there. Full stop.
