WASHINGTON — AIDS United announced Wednesday the appointment of Bradley Kiley to the position of vice president and chief operating officer. 

“We are excited that Brad is joining our team,” said Jesse Milan, AIDS United’s president and CEO. “His long professional and personal commitment to our mission and his outstanding experience leading operations for national and global entities make him a great addition to AIDS United. I’m looking forward to his help implementing our new strategic plan and to his partnership with all our members and grantees.”

“Much progress has been made in the fight to end the HIV epidemic, but more must be done to end this epidemic once and for all,” Kiley said. “It is my honor and a great pleasure to serve as AIDS United’s chief operating officer, and I look forward to contributing in meaningful ways as we work together with our colleagues and partners throughout the movement to see its end during our lifetime.”

Kiley has more than 30 years of professional experience working in Washington, D.C. An established leader in operational management for progressive causes, Kiley played key operational leadership roles for the 1996 Democratic National Convention, as well as for the Democratic National Committee during much of the 1990s. He served as a senior appointee for management and administration in both the Clinton and Obama White Houses and was instrumental to the early and successful growth of the Center for American Progress, a think tank in Washington, D.C.

Following his service during the first term of the Obama administration, Kiley served as chief operating officer for the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation where he managed the end-to-end finances, human resources and field operations for the $200 million organization from January 2013 to 2020. Kiley most recently served as chief operating officer for Radio Free Asia.  

Kiley was hired after an intensive national search led by recruiting firm Cooper Colemen. Kiley began in the position Jan. 17.
