RSNA names new executive director
The board of directors of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) has appointed Mark G. Watson as its executive director, effective April 1.

Watson comes to the position with nearly 20 years of experience working in capacities at RSNA and has served as the interim executive director since September 2008, according to the society.

Assistant executive director for finance and administration at RSNA for the past 15 years, Watson was selected after a candidate search by Korn/Ferry International in conjunction with RSNA's board of directors and executive director search committee, according to Burton P. Drayer, MD, chairman of the RSNA board of directors.

Watson also has served as the executive director of the Radiation Research Society and the North American Hyperthermia Society, working closely with the governing boards and committees of these societies and overseeing their administration. In 2005, he was named director of the RSNA Research and Education Foundation.
