American Bible Society names Peterson new leader comment (0)

January 30, 2014

New York — The American Bible Society (ABS) has named a new president, Roy Peterson, who will begin his duties in February at the New York-based ministry.

Peterson currently is president and CEO of The Seed Company, a ministry based in Arlington, Texas, that has been a catalyst for 800 Bible translation projects/partnerships worldwide by organizations, groups and individuals since its launch in 1993 by Wycliffe Bible Translators.

Pieter Dearolf, ABS board chairman, said Peterson’s “decades-long leadership in Bible translation and depth of experience will serve him well as he helps lead American Bible Society into our third century of ministry.”

Peterson joined The Seed Company in 2003. He had been president and CEO of Wycliffe USA since 1997 and spent eight years in Ecuador and Guatemala in various Wycliffe leadership positions. Peterson previously held management positions with U.S. Shoe Corporation, Florsheim Corporation and American Greetings Corporation.
