WHITE PLAINS, N.Y., July 8 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Two leaders in the world of advertising and financial services have been elected to the national Board of Trustees of the March of Dimes Foundation.

March of Dimes trustees, who serve as volunteers, represent the public in governing the organization and advancing its mission, and serve five-year terms.

"We're so pleased to have these dedicated volunteers join our effort to give America's babies a healthy start in life," said Dr. Jennifer L. Howse, president of the March of Dimes. "We rely on volunteers such as Troy Ruhanen and Bob Woudstra, who bring us their commitment to our mission, their marketing and business savvy, and their community-based experience."

The new trustees are:

Troy Ruhanen, deputy chairman of BBDO North America. Mr. Ruhanen's work overseeing BBDO's AT&T assignment has won several advertising awards. Prior to BBDO, Mr. Ruhanen was executive vice president and managing director at Publicis Groupe's Leo Burnett Worldwide, where he also ran Burnett's agency in Sydney, Australia.

In 2008, he was inducted into the American Advertising Federation's Advertising Hall of Achievement. A native of Australia, he is a graduate of Queensland University of Technology. He and his wife have four children and live in Bronxville, New York.

Robert Woudstra, Chief Executive Officer of Farmers Group, Inc., and a member of the Group Management Board of parent group Zurich Financial Services, Ltd. Mr. Woudstra was Chief Operating Officer of Foremost Insurance Group when it was acquired by Farmers in 2000.
