New York, N.Y., July 10, 2017

The National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse (CASA)* announced today that Joseph J. Plumeri, Executive Chair of CASA, will serve as interim President of the organization. Mr. Plumeri, a CASA Board member for 20 years, is currently Vice Chairman of First Data and previously served as Chairman and CEO of Willis Group. Before joining Willis, he was CEO of Citibank North America, Chairman and CEO of Travelers Primerica Financial Services, Vice Chairman of the Travelers Group, and President and Managing Partner of Shearson Lehman Brothers.

“We look forward to continuing our goal of eradicating addiction,” said Mr. Plumeri. “No parent should have to lose a child to the epidemic we are facing and CASA remains committed to this fight.”

Earlier this year, CASA narrowed its mission to no longer focus on behavioral addictions, such as gambling and food. As such, CASA will end its behavioral health collaboration with Yale School of Medicine and Yale School of Public Health and Samuel A. Ball will no longer serve as President and CEO of CASA.
