WASHINGTON, D.C.—The Council for Advancement and Support of Education has announced the appointment of Ron Mattocks, vice president of marketing, membership and external relations for CASE, to the newly created position of chief operating officer, effective July 1.

In his new role, Mattocks will be responsible for enhancing operational support worldwide for the association, which has offices in Washington, D.C., Singapore, London and Mexico City. Specifically, Mattocks will oversee business development, financial management, information systems, human resources and investments for CASE. He will also oversee the implementation of CASE's new strategic plan following its review in July by the CASE Board of Trustees.

A certified association executive (CAE) with more than 30 years of experience in nonprofit management, Mattocks joined the CASE staff in 2009 as vice president of marketing, membership and external relations.
