During her 26-year career with the Foundation, Montgomery Tabron has been involved in all aspects of its operations, most recently as Executive Vice President for Operations and Chief Financial Officer.  She is also a leading civic advocate, serving as president of the board of the Western Michigan University Foundation, and as a board member of many community organizations, including Southwest Michigan First, Battle Creek Community Health Partners, Bronson Methodist Hospital and the Mississippi Center for Education Innovation. She is a Certified Public Accountant and Certified Management Accountant.

Also at the meeting, it was announced Sterling Speirn, the former president and chief executive officer of the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, is stepping down from the Kellogg Company Board of Directors.

"Kellogg Company has benefited greatly from Sterling's global insight and experience throughout his six years as a member of our Board. We wish him all the best as he continues his work on behalf of vulnerable children and families in the philanthropic and nonprofit arenas," said Jenness.
