23 August 2012 - Greensboro, NC - The Center for Creative Leadership (CCL) is pleased to announce the appointment of Ed Milano, Vice President of Program Development at Continuum, a global innovation and design consultancy, as its new Innovator in Residence.

In this one-year, renewable role that became effective Aug. 13, Milano will partner with CCL to enhance healthcare through new approaches to leadership development, develop innovative organizational cultures and identify emerging trends in the field of leadership.

"Ed Milano is an authority on innovation," said David G. Altman, CCL's Executive Vice President of Research, Innovation and Product Development. "His know-how, combined with CCL's expertise, will help develop exciting leadership solutions that will benefit our clients around the world."

Milano, who will continue to work full-time at Continuum, directs the customization of Continuum's services for clients and also founded the firm's health and wellness research community. He facilitates workshops for clients and presents at conferences on design and innovation.

"The Center for Creative Leadership is an innovation organization at heart, founded on groundbreaking social science that disrupted traditional industrial psychology," said Milano. "Now that innovation is a hot concept in corporate, government and nonprofit circles, CCL is in a perfect position to help today's leaders with the challenges that come with driving change and creating new value. I am honored to help support that work." Milano is an alumnus of CCL's Leadership at the Peak program for senior executives and has served as a trainer in CCL programs on leading innovation.
