Jenkins was elected March 13 at a meeting of the directors and trustees. He replaces Robert J. Flynn, who died at the end of February.

Jenkins joined the board in 2009 and was treasurer and vice chairman prior to being elected chairman. He is a director on the board of the American Bureau of Shipping Inc. and a trustee of the Webb Institute. He was president and CEO of ExxonMobil affiliates providing worldwide shipping and marine transportation when he retired from ExxonMobil in 2012.

Jenkins is a professional member of the American Society of Safety Engineers, a member of the Society of Petroleum Engineers, a past member of the Secretary of Transportation’s Advisory Board for the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy and the Marine Board of the Transportation Research Board of the National Academies.

“It is a privilege to serve as chairman of the Coast Guard Foundation and to continue the legacy of those who have held this position before me,” Jenkins said in a statement. “In all of our activities we strive to do all we can to support the men and women of the United States Coast Guard. It is an honor to serve on this board and I am proud to work alongside the Foundation team to reach our goals.”

“We are thrilled to have Will take on the role of chairman,” Coast Guard Foundation president Anne Brengle said. “He has been a very active part of our board of directors and we look forward to the coming years under his leadership. His experience in corporate management and the maritime industry will be a huge benefit to the future of the foundation.”
