This assumes that the president would act selfishly to advance the goals
of its company and that the miss-trust in the community has reached
everstian levels. 

A president would likely be someone that the rest of the board trusts,
and that will understand that being appointed as a president means that
his decisions on behalf of the foundation should come before the needs
of his employer.

Boards have the power to remove the president, the day that a president
needs to be appointed every week, is the day that Gnome is in serious
jeopardy as a project.
