Daniel Kelsey named new AHRA CEO

AHRA has announced that Daniel Kelsey, MBA, CAE, is its newest CEO. Kelsey has more than 20 years of experience with nonprofit organizations working on strategic planning and business development. He previously served as deputy CEO for the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists.

“As a veteran of the healthcare association world, I’m very excited to join AHRA, the preeminent organization for imaging leaders, who set and live up to high standards for quality care and innovation,” Kelsey said in a prepared statement. “All of my professional experience will enable me to enhance AHRA’s commitment to member success and education, advocacy, and certification. I look forward to upholding the AHRA’s strong priorities and financial soundness, while expanding its reach to increase the impact and awareness of the organization.”

“Dan’s strategic drive, distinguished career in the association management community, and passion for membership make him the perfect choice to lead AHRA and help shape the strategic focus and advocacy efforts of the next phase of its development,” Bill Algee, AHRA president, said in the same statement. “We’re thrilled to welcome Dan aboard.” 

AHRA's previous CEO, Ed Cronin, Jr., retired earlier this year after spending 14 years in the position.
