At a recent Online General Assembly, members of the Davos, Switzerland, based World Communication Forum Association elected six new members to expand its Global Executive Board to ten members from around the world. Two of the previous five members did not renew their seats on the board but they will remain ordinary members of the association.
The expanded Global Executive Board is tasked with leading the Association through the next exciting phase of its global and programmatic expansion as most world economies begin to emerge from various levels of Covid-19 lockdowns.
Led by well-known international PR Expert and author, Maxim Behar (Bulgaria), who takes on a fresh 3-year mandate as president, the new board boasts three Vice-Presidents: Solly Moeng (South Africa), Ganesh Chandrasekaran (India), and Jon-Hans Coetzer (Portugal).
Newly accepted Board members are Nurul-Maria Ashiquin (Malaysia), Clara Ly-Le (Vietnam), Mina Nazari (Iran), Professor Jacqueline Strayer (USA), Saurabh Uboweja (India) and Cesare Valli (Italy).
Mumbai, India, based Yogesh Joshi will act as an external Controller on key Executive Board matters.
“I feel confident to be working with a global group of professionals and experts in the areas of public communications and skills development as we embark into a world and a global economy that are still finding their feet again, following months of lockdowns”, president Maxim Behar. “We’re all delighted to find ourselves at the forefront of the process to define new, hybrid, ways to engage our global members and their clients or employers using new digital platforms that will keep us connected in-between our annual gatherings in Davos, Switzerland. Tomorrow is already here”, he said.
