 Rear Admiral Marty Evans, US Navy (Ret.) Biography

As one of America's most respected leaders, Marty Evans' exceptional career has combined both military service and stewardship of the nation's preeminent non-profit organizations. During her nearly 30 years with the Navy, Evans distinguished herself as one of only a handful of women to reach the rank of rear admiral and gained a reputation for forging new ground for women in the military; she was the first woman to command a U.S. naval station as well as chair the task force formed to address the gender-based issues that gave rise to the infamous Tailhook scandal. Evans was the highest ranking woman in the Navy; she retired in 1998.

Evans next assumed leadership of Girl Scouts of the USA, where she revolutionized the 90-year old organization and modernized its vision and programs for its nearly three million young members, increasing its diversity and growing its volunteer base to historic highs. In 2002, Evans was selected as the 13th President and Chief Executive Officer of the American Red Cross, skillfully steering the organization through some of the most tumultuous and destructive events in history including Hurricanes Katrina, Rita and Wilma as well as the deadly Southeast Asian tsunami in 2004. For her leadership of the Red Cross response, she was named "Executive of the Year" by Non Profit Times. Most recently, Evans served as the Acting Commissioner of the Ladies Professional Golf Association (LPGA), the premier women's professional sports organization in the world.
