Earley will succeed former City Councilman Tony Young, who stepped down in March after a year in the position.
“I’m humbled to join the dedicated staff and volunteers at the San Diego/Imperial Counties Chapter of the Red Cross,” Earley said. “It’s an honor to join one of the most trusted community service organizations in education, preparation and response to natural disasters and human emergencies.”
Earley spent 24 years with the law firm of McKenna Long & Aldridge, where he was a partner. He has also served in leadership roles with the San Diego Regional Chamber of Commerce, Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and the SDSU Alumni Association, among others.
The San Diego State University alumnus was the Internet broadcast voice for the women’s basketball team for several years.
“We truly believe Bill Earley is the right choice to help further the Red Cross’ humanitarian mission in the San Diego and Imperial communities,” said Bill Trumpfheller, chairman of the board of directors for the Red Cross and president of the public relations firm Nuffer, Smith, Tucker.
Earley will begin his new job on July 14.
