Many of FIP member organisations have expressed their emotion further to the sad passing of our General Secretary and CEO, Ton Hoek on 28 July 2012.
I would like to thank you all on behalf of the FIP Executive Committee for your kind messages which have been shared with his family.
At its August meeting, the FIP ExCo decided that for the interim period (time needed to find and recruit the successor of Ton), the following distribution of roles and responsibilities is established:
Luc Besançon, currently Manager Professional and Scientific Affairs, will be during the interim period, Acting General Secretary for Professional, Scientific and External Affairs
Rachel van Kesteren, currently Executive Secretary, will be during the interim period, Assistant for Financial and Personnel Affairs
Carola van der Hoeff, currently Congress Director, will be during the interim period, Acting General Secretary for Administrative and Internal Affairs
As ExCo we recognize the exceptional efforts made by the staff members during these very demanding times.
