New York, June 13, 2024: Page President Roger Bolton announced today that he will be stepping down from his role at the end of 2024.

“It has been an honor and a privilege to serve as president of this outstanding professional community,” Bolton said, “and I leave with deep gratitude to all of our members for their support and collaboration in taking Page to new heights. It’s time for new leadership at Page and time for me to move on to other professional pursuits.’

Bolton noted that Page is in the first year of an ambitious new three-year strategic plan, and he felt it was appropriate for his successor to have an opportunity to have some time in the role before the next strategic planning period was upon us.

“We are grateful for Roger’s extraordinary service to Page and our profession,” said Kelli Parsons, the chair of Page and global chair, Corporate Affairs & Advisory at Hill & Knowlton. “Roger has led Page through more than a decade of growth and influence by strengthening our remarkable community and the impact of communication leaders on business and society.”

Under Bolton’s leadership, Page significantly increased its membership and became much more diverse and international. In alignment with the Page mission and purpose, Page members today are much more influential in the C-Suite, helping their enterprises to be more effective in creating and delivering value for all stakeholders, improving both business and society.

Prior to taking on the CEO role at Page in 2011, Bolton had served as chair of Page in 2006-2007 and in senior communication/public affairs roles at Aetna, IBM, the U.S. Treasury, the White House, the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative and the U.S. Congress.

The search for Bolton’s successor will begin soon. Details will be announced following the June 20 meeting of the Page Board of Trustees. Bolton said he will announce his future professional plans at a later date.
