We are excited to build on the core strengths of ISBER, the commitment of its leadership and its successes to date, to position them as global leaders,” said Connie Minogue, CEO of Malachite.
Malachite will assume management of ISBER on June 1, 2013. Between now and the end of May, Malachite will work with the ISBER Board of Directors, which is comprised of the Council for the ASIP division of ISBER, to effect a smooth transition of the society’s operations.
