A week after Matthew Brouillette announced he would be stepping down as president and CEO of the Commonwealth Foundation, the Harrisburg-based free-market think tank has named a new leader.

Charles Mitchell, currently the organization's executive vice president, will take over the conservative-leaning Commonwealth Foundation on July 1.

Mitchell joined the think tank in 2010. Since then, he has helped grow the Commonwealth Foundation's revenue to more than $4 million from less than $1 million and expanded its presence through opening a Philadelphia-area office.

"There is no one I would rather see step into this role than Charles Mitchell," Brouillette said in a statement. "Without a doubt, the Commonwealth Foundation would not have grown as it has these past years without Charles' leadership, vision and tireless dedication to making Pennsylvania a better state for everyone."

Mitchell, who grew up in the Philadelphia area, is a graduate of Bucknell University.
