"My mother was diagnosed with ALS last year and the disease is progressing rapidly. Shortly after her diagnosis, we met the amazing ALS TDI staff and their dedicated chairman Augie Nieto. I am honored to join the Board and work with my fellow directors to ensure that the Institute has the support it needs to continue to find ways to reduce the time and cost of drug development. I have no doubt that this organization will continue to change the way the world thinks about ALS," said Godhwani.

Godhwani is the co-founder of Simply Hired, an online job search engine based in Mountain View, Calif. The site has over 14 million visitors per month. Prior to Simply Hired Godhwani founded AtWeb, an online promotion and maintenance company, which he sold in 1998. Godhwani is also the co-founder of the India Community Center (ICC) in Milpitas, Calif., the largest Indo-American focused community organization in the country providing hundreds of programs annually to community members. Godhwani has helped raise over $15 million for ICC.

"Each member of our Board plays a unique role in helping us achieve our mission. As a successful entrepreneur and community philanthropist Anil will bring new experiences and fresh ideas. The executive team is looking forward to working with him, and the entire ALS community will benefit from having him take on a leadership role at ALS TDI," said the Institute
