Nonprofit exec ousted – Billed charity for meals, cosmetic surgery

 | 

The CEO of Catholic Charities of San Francisco has resigned after the nonprofit’s board condemned his “lavish and extravagant” spending on restaurant meals and cosmetic surgery, the San Francisco Chronicle reported August 11.

A board probe concluded that Frank Hudson “melded his professional and personal lifestyles” by spending $73,000 of the group’s money over two years on gourmet meals at expensive restaurants and on anti-wrinkle treatments and laser hair removal.

Hudson said he dined with politicians and business executives to increase the charity’s profile. But the board report said he sometimes listed on receipts the names of people not at the meal.
