The resignation this week of Henry “Hank” White Jr., the American Bar Association‘s executive director, follows other recent staff departures amid a reorganization set in motion by the ABA’s new president, Carolyn Lamm.

The chief financial officer, Kenneth Widelka, who was arguably the No. 2 staff official below White, left in September after just over a year in the job. Widelka was replaced this month by Kathryn Shaw, formerly vice president for Siemens Building Technologies.
