  • February 11, 2020

Jesuit Fr. Alan J. Fogarty has been appointed chief executive officer of Salt + Light Media, effective Aug. 1.

Fogarty, who was ordained to the priesthood in 1998,  has held various senior leadership positions in Canada and the United States. On Dec. 31 he concluded six years of service to the Jesuit Superior General in Rome as president of the Gregorian University Foundation, New York and Washington, D.C., and president of Gregoriana Inc., Toronto. 

Fogarty takes over from Alexander Du, who had been interim CEO since last June, when Fr. Thomas Rosica resigned following revelations of  plagiarism. Du will resume his role as chief operating office after Aug. 1.

Fogarty joins Salt + Light with degrees in philosophy, theology, leadership and administration. 

"Rooted in his love for Jesus Christ and commitment through Ignatian spirituality to the mission of the Society of Jesus and the Church, he embodies a broad range of experience resulting in a strong background in organizational and visionary leadership as well as a proven record in global networking and fundraising,” said a release on the appointment from the board of directors for Salt + Light Media Foundation.
