Howard Rieger was officially named president and CEO of the North American federation system. As expected, the longtime president of the United Jewish Federation of Pittsburgh was formally approved for the job Wednesday by the board of trustees of the United Jewish Communities, the federations’ coordinating body. Rieger, 61, will succeed Stephen Hoffman, who has held the presidency since 2001.
