SAN FRANCISCO, CA (June 4, 2013) – IABC International Chair, Kerby Meyers, has announced the resignation of Executive Director Chris Sorek. Sorek will work on special projects for the Board over the next two months.
Meyers commented, “We thank Chris for his contributions over the past 11 months, and for leading an operational review that resulted in a number of business efficiencies for the Association. Changes introduced on several fronts are helping the organization meet the objectives laid out in our strategy.”
Between now and the end of June, Meyers will lead the daily IABC operations with support from senior Board members and staff. Following IABC’s World Conference, which takes place in New York from June 23 through 26, the Board will look for an interim Executive Director until the position is filled on a more permanent basis.
During his tenure with IABC, Sorek supported the Content Management Team in their recommendation to move IABC’s Communication World print magazine online, led the re-engineering of IABC’s technology infrastructure, and worked with volunteers that were developing the Career Road Map, and revamping the Gold Quill Awards and the certification program.
Meyers said, “IABC’s strategy remains on track. We are dedicated to delivering exceptional service to our members and growing the Association. We have an ambitious agenda and will continue to implement innovative products and services that raise the bar within the communication profession worldwide.”
