American Heart Association seats new president and officers as chairman enters 2nd of two-year term
July 03, 2018
DALLAS, June 29, 2018 — American Heart Association, the world’s leading voluntary organization dedicated to building healthier lives, free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke, enters its 2018-19 fiscal year on July 1 with Jim Postl returning as chairman, Ivor Benjamin, M.D., serving as president and a cadre of new national board members providing governance support. From pioneering frontiers in precision medicine to accelerating drug discovery, the organization is making significant strides in fulfilling its mission.

Now entering the second of his two-year term as chairman of the board, Jim Postl, retired president and chief executive officer of Houston, Texas-based Pennzoil-Quaker State Company, has been instrumental in the Association’s increasingly global influence in 2017-18. This year, alone, the Association championed legislation expanding access to care for heart attack and stroke patients and released new blood pressure guidelines. The organization also announced four new centers within its vascular disease Strategically Focused Research Networks and six centers in its atrial fibrillation network. An Association volunteer for more than 18 years, Postl has been a member of the national board of directors since 2010.
