Former Philip Morris USA President and CEO Cliff Fleet took over as the ninth president and CEO of the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation on Jan. 1.

Colonial Williamsburg holds assets worth more than $1 billion, including the 18th-century living history attraction as well as museums, lodging and other businesses.
A William & Mary alum who holds a bachelor’s degree in history and religion and graduate degrees in history, business administration and law, Fleet is also president of the Jamestown-Yorktown Foundation Board of Directors.
