Retired Army Captain Anthony K. Odierno, Retired First Lieutenant Andrew Kinard and BCG Partners Inc. Chief Administration Officer Roger C. Campbell will hold these new positions.

"We felt it was important to expand the Board of Directors to meet the evolving needs of our growing organization," stated Wounded Warrior Project CEO Steve Nardizzi. "Anthony, Andrew and Roger each bring a unique perspective and range of experiences which we know will go a long way in enhancing our already strong and committed Board."

Anthony K. Odierno is a wounded warrior who served as a Captain in the United States Army. He currently works for the New York Yankees in operations where he plays an integral role in the day-to-day operations of Yankee Stadium.

Stern School of Business at NYU and a Bachelors of Science in Civil Engineering from the United States Military Academy at West Point.

Andrew Kinard was commissioned in the Marine Corps after graduating from the United States Naval Academy. While serving as a platoon commander in the Al Anbar Province of Iraq, Andrew's patrol was attacked by insurgents using an improvised explosive device. Andrew suffered the loss of both of his legs and has undergone over sixty surgeries to repair the multiple internal and external injuries caused by the explosion. During his recovery at Walter Reed hospital, he served in the Office of General Counsel in the Department of Defense and as a military fellow for a United States senator. He will attend Harvard Law School this fall.

Roger C. Campbell is the Chief Administrative Officer for BGC Partners Inc. in New York City where he directs the administrative, operations, legal, compliance, risk management and facilities functions.
