CEO of Susan G. Komen for the Cure resigns, other changes as well

Posted: Updated:

(WMC-TV) - There's a shakeup going on at Susan G. Komen for the Cure - one of America's leading breast cancer advocacy groups.

It says Nancy Brinker, who founded the group 30 years ago, will leave as CEO, and move to a new management position.

The company's President, Elizabeth Thompson, will step down next month. In addition to that, two board members are also leaving.

Brinker told the Wall Street Journal the changes are unrelated to the Planned Parenthood controversy earlier this year.
