“It is with pleasure and complete confidence that the board of directors and I confirm Trace Chesser as president and CEO of USA Cares,” said Bill Roby Sr., board chairman of USA Cares. “Trace is a dedicated and passionate executive with extensive professional experience in both the military and civilian sectors. Over the past several months, it has become increasingly clear that Trace is the right person to lead USA Cares as we continue to grow awareness for our mission and expand our reach to assist post-9/11 veterans across the country.”
