SAN MATEO, Calif., Nov. 14, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Fiduciary Trust Company International, a global wealth manager and wholly-owned subsidiary of Franklin Templeton Investments, announces that Suzanne E. Kline, CFA®, regional managing director for Northern California, has been appointed to the executive leadership team of the Bay Area Division of the American Heart Association’s Go Red For Women® movement.

The Go Red For Women initiative focuses on educating women about heart disease and stroke—the No. 1 and No. 5 causes of death for women, respectively. All money raised by Go Red For Women directly funds the American Heart Association’s research, development, and community outreach programs in the area of women’s cardiovascular disease and stroke.

“The American Heart Association is a powerful force for helping people live longer and healthier lives, and I am proud to be able to work with the organization in pursuit of this mission,” said Ms. Kline, who serves as a member of Fiduciary Trust’s Operating Committee. “Educating women on the dangers of heart disease and stroke—and how to protect themselves against these silent killers—is critical for saving lives, and Go Red For Women is steadfast in its commitment to improving women’s cardiovascular health.”

The Go Red For Women Bay Area Division executive leadership team is comprised of 20 like-minded women executives who are committed to making a positive impact in the field of women’s health. Ms. Kline was nominated by Jenny Johnson, president and chief operating officer of Franklin Templeton Investments, to represent Fiduciary Trust and Franklin Templeton Investments on the movement’s executive leadership team.

“We commend Suzanne for her dedication to the Go Red For Women cause,” said Lawrence A. Sternkopf, president and chief operating officer of Fiduciary Trust Company International. “Her work on our behalf with the American Heart Association has the potential to help women in communities across the San Francisco Bay Area, and the country, take control of their heart health.”
