Calls for the resignation of Nancy G. Brinker, the founder and chief executive of Susan G. Komen for the Cure, the breast cancer charity, grew Wednesday amid news that a second high-profile executive was leaving the group.
On Tuesday, Dr. Dara P. Richardson-Heron, the chief executive of Komen’s Greater New York City affiliate, said she had made a “personal decision” to resign effective April 27.
Katrina McGhee, the executive vice president and chief marketing officer of Komen’s national organization, said late last month that she planned to resign in May, also for personal reasons. Ms. McGhee oversees more than 200 corporate partnerships, 140 race events and more than $350 million in annual revenue at Komen. Leslie Aun, a Komen spokeswoman, said Ms. McGhee planned to consult for the group.
