Greensboro health funder taps new chief

GREENSBORO, N.C. — The Moses Cone-Wesley Long Community Health Foundation has named Jan Capps as its new president, replacing Bob Newton, who served in the top spot for almost a decade.

Capps, formerly vice president of human resources for the North American Unit of Syngenta, serves as a trustee of Guilford Day School in Greensboro and previously was a member of the board of advisors at the Bryan School of Business at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro.

The foundation, which works to improve the health of people in the Moses Cone service area, has assets of $127 million and has awarded almost $40 million in grants since it was founded in 1999.

Newton will retire on June 30 and Capps will begin work in early July.
