The executive directors of the World Bank today named Dartmouth College President Jim Yong Kim to head the World Bank. Kim's "rigorous, science-based drive for results will be invaluable for the World Bank Group as it modernizes to better serve client countries in overcoming poverty," outgoing President Robert B. Zoellick said in a statement following the announcement of Kim's appointment.
Kim will start his new job on 1 July, following a long career in public health and academia.
