IVI [to 18 July 2015]

:: IVI Leadership Change Announcement
Mr. John Morahan is stepping down as IVI’s Chief Operating Officer (COO), effective July 17, 2015. He is resigning for personal reasons.

A recruitment process has been implemented for John’s successor.

John joined IVI in August, 2011 as the Chief Financial Officer and Deputy Director General of Finance & Administration. During his tenure, the Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system was launched, and systems, internal control and financial management were strengthened. John served as Acting Director General in 2014 after the departure of Dr. Christian Loucq as IVI’s Director General, and led the Institute during the transition process until a new Director General was appointed. Following the appointment of Dr. Jerome Kim as IVI’s Director General, John became the Chief Operating Officer (COO) in early 2015.

IVI’s leadership and the Board of Trustees recognize that John’s tenure as CFO, COO and Acting Director General, occurring at a difficult and critical time in IVI’s history, has provided leadership, stability and a foundation for future growth. We thank John for his contributions and wish him all the best in his endeavors.
