Mr. Hayward, a retired four-star U.S. Navy admiral who served on the Joint Chiefs of Staff during the Carter and Reagan administrations, will lead fund- raising activities for the Denver-based ECS. He currently heads Thomas B. Hayward Associates, a consulting firm that helps U.S. companies develop business opportunities in the Pacific region.
As the organization's Washington liaison, Mr. Goldberg will help communicate state perspectives on educational issues to Congress and the White House. He currently serves as the executive vice president of the National Alliance of Business, a Washington- based group that serves as the voice of the business community in efforts to improve K-12 and higher education.
The ECS is a nonprofit organization that works with state policymakers to identify and implement educational policies that improve student learning.

Mr. Moloney, who is the Colorado commissioner of education, succeeds Jim Nelson, who resigned as chairman last month but plans to remain a member of the board. Mr. Nelson has also announced he is resigning in April as Texas commissioner of education to pursue a career with Voyager Expanded Learning, a Dallas-based company.
