LOS ANGELES–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Ranjan Goswami, vice president, Sales – West for Delta Air Lines, has
been elected to the Children’s Hospital Los Angeles Board of Trustees,
which establishes the vision, mission and goals of one of the largest
pediatric health care facilities in the United States.
“We welcome Ranjan Goswami to the CHLA Board,” says Board Co-chair Lynda
Boone Fetter. “Not only is he a proven leader in his industry who has
worked for years to strengthen the relationship between our hospital and
Delta Air Lines, he has a distinguished track record of humanitarian
service to the Los Angeles community.”
“Ranjan Goswami has succeeded in establishing and building ties between
organizations with likeminded interests,” says Board Co-chair Arnold
“Arnie” Kleiner. “We believe his leadership and dedication to helping
the youth in our community are a great fit for our Board and emblematic
of our mission to create hope and build healthier futures for children.”
Goswami currently oversees Delta’s commercial strategy in LA in addition
to managing key account growth across the West Coast. He also is deeply
involved in the Los Angeles community, serving on the boards of
directors for Habitat for Humanity of Greater Los Angeles, Junior
Achievement of Southern California, and the Los Angeles Chamber of
Commerce. Goswami received his Master of Arts and Bachelor of Arts
degrees in political science from Yale University and currently lives in
Marina Del Rey.
“It is part of Delta’s core values to serve the communities where we
live and work, and we have a strong commitment to LA’s nonprofit and
community organizations,” says Goswami. “I am grateful to my fellow
board members for entrusting me with this important responsibility, and
I look forward to working alongside them and the dedicated CHLA staff to
advance the hospital’s mission to provide the highest-quality care to
infants, children and young adults.”
The work of Goswami and many others has allowed Children’s Hospital Los
Angeles and Delta Air Lines to sustain their longstanding relationship.
Delta previously has sponsored CHLA’s Noche de Niños Gala, and for the
past five years Delta has worked with CHLA and other community partners
to host the annual “Holiday in the Hangar” event, where volunteers dress
like elves, sing carols, and treat patients and their families to an
afternoon excursion to the “North Pole” (a holiday-spruced-up Delta
hangar at LAX).
CHLA is a nonprofit pediatric hospital under the leadership of a
volunteer Board of Trustees. Consisting of community leaders and
physicians, the Board makes decisions that direct quality care, secure
the financial health of the hospital, build positive community
relationships, and ensure top-caliber executive management performance
and fundraising to fulfill the hospital’s mission.
Goswami’s three-year term as a trustee lasts through 2019.
