LARRY SHEPHERD NAMED ANA EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR

[The long search for a nontoxic Executive Director for
the American Numismatic Association is over.  The ANA
published a press release on Friday - here are some
excerpts.  -Editor]

Former banking and investment executive and life-long
coin collector Larry Shepherd has been named the new
executive director of the American Numismatic Association,
President Barry Stuppler announced today.

"We are very pleased that Larry has accepted our offer
to become the next executive director of the ANA," Stuppler
said. "He brings with him extraordinary business experience,
and has had an exemplary record of success throughout his
career. He is well-respected in the numismatic community
with a well-earned reputation for integrity. We look
forward to his leadership at this critical time in the
ANA's history."

Shepherd said he will begin traveling to ANA headquarters
in Colorado Springs within a couple of weeks to have meetings
with staff, and he expects to begin full-time duties by
mid-to-late spring.

"The ANA is an organization that is vital to the numismatic
community, but it's also an organization that has issues
and needs help," Shepherd said. "It will take hard work,
creative management and fresh ideas to get the ANA back on
the right track, and I'm motivated by those challenges."

[This is a welcome next step in the ANA's long road to
recovery.  Our best wishes to the new Executive Director,
and ANA staff and board.  -Editor]
