Dear colleagues, AIB wishes to announce that our Executive Director, Tomas Hult, will be stepping down on January 1, 2020. As the longest serving Executive Director in AIB’s history, Tomas, with his team at Michigan State University, has solidified the financial stability of AIB and has overseen the growth of the organization, capping his term with record attendance of over 1400 delegates in Copenhagen. After 16 years of service to the AIB, and with the start of a new contractual term and renewed support for the AIB Secretariat from Michigan State University, Tomas will be passing the baton to Tunga Kiyak. Tunga is well-known to the AIB community, having served as Managing Director over the same period. From January 1, 2020, the roles of Executive Director and Managing Director will be merged. AIB thanks Tomas for his service, congratulates Tunga in his new role, and expresses its appreciation to the Eli Broad College of Business at Michigan State University for its continued support for the AIB Secretariat. Sincerely, The AIB Secretariat ____ AIB-L is brought to you by the Academy of International Business.
