CJ Szafir, the former executive vice president of the Wisconsin Institute for Law & Liberty, has been named president of the conservative nonprofit group Institute for Reforming Government.
The organization announced his hire on Monday. A press release published to its website said IRG plans to introduce new conservative-reform priorities with Szafir’s hire, including legislative and budget recommendations, accountability projects and government-reform policies.
Szafir worked for WILL for more than seven years, overseeing the organization’s advocacy on issues like school choice, limited government and healthcare reform.
Szafir said he was grateful for everything WILL President Rick Esenberg had done for his career, and he looked forwarded to working with Esenberg and his former WILL colleagues in his new role.
