Update Newsletter - August 2018
Leaving a company you have been running for some years is a difficult time to endure. Decisions beyond a certain time horizon really should be left to my successor and days become long. Colleagues you have recruited and work closely with are wondering how the new boss will see their value and I feel responsible for their anxiety.
There is no need to worry as the IFFO Board Selection Committee found a great replacement for me in Petter Martin Johannessen, who not only brings extensive industry experience but is also very familiar with IFFO. My primary concern now is to give him the best possible start in his new role and ensure the IFFO organisation continues to run smoothly as I depart and Petter arrives. Fortunately we are just in that dip in activity between launching the Rome Annual Conference and the immediate run up to the event – if early registrations are anything to go by it will be another successful conference.
