Kevin Alfred Strom, Founder and Managing Director of National Vanguard

The group was founded by dissident members of the National Alliance, led by Kevin Alfred Strom and the National Alliance's Executive Committee. The Committee issued a formal declaration called "A Time for Leadership." [4] The declaration decried then-Chairman Erich Gliebe's dissolution of the National Alliance Board of Directors, reducing its composition to include merely himself and COO Shaun Walker. It called for a reconstitution of the Board of Directors, and the merger of the Board with the Executive Committee in both membership and function. Gliebe and Walker rejected the declaration.
