ZERO's CEO Steps Down After Thirteen Years Of Leadership

Skip was a driving force in the movement to bring prostate cancer awareness from a backwater activity to a significant and viable activity to find a cure. Working with celebrities from Rudy Giuliani to Julius "Dr. J." Erving, and organizations including Major League Baseball, National Hockey League and NASCAR, Skip worked to educate men about their health and the importance of early detection.

When Skip became CEO, the organization changed its name from National Prostate Cancer Coalition to ZERO – The Project to End Prostate Cancer. The organization has grown from a staff of six to sixteen and recently updated its name to ZERO – The End of Prostate Cancer during a rebranding. Skip worked to bring the organization to full transparency, attaining 501c3 charity and Better Business Bureau certifications.

"Skip is a pioneer in the field of men's health," said Jamie Bearse, incoming CEO at ZERO. "He does not believe in complacency and his energy and unique approach to challenges propelled ZERO to the front lines in the fight to end prostate cancer. His passion will be greatly missed as we continue to work to end this disease."

Skip, his wife Julie and son Harry are moving to upstate New York where Skip will join his father-in-law in running his family's industrial piping business.

About ZERO — The End of Prostate Cancer ( www.zerocancer.org) Zero prostate cancer deaths. Zero prostate cancer cases and for those with prostate cancer, it means a zero PSA. Our name conveys what we stand for – all action and zero tolerance for prostate cancer.
