FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – August 21, 2013 – Following a vote by the ICF Global Board of Directors, Meryl Moritz, MCC, has been selected to fill the position of Vice Chair for the remainder of the 2013 term, effective immediately.
Moritz will replace Bernie Siegel, PCC, who resigned the position of Vice Chair on August 15, 2013. The ICF Global Board and ICF HQ staff wish to thank Siegel for his service.
Moritz has been a member of the ICF Global Board since 2010, serving as a vice president in 2011 and 2012. She is founder and president of Meryl Moritz Resources, which supports executives in global organizations in enhancing their leadership performance; she is also a coach educator and mentor to organizational coaches. Before entering the profession, she spent a decade as an executive in international corporations and another decade as a management consultant.
“ICF faces increasingly critical decisions as we formulate our global growth and retention strategies, continue to upgrade our standards for excellence in coaching, and lean into the tasks of curating and collating the body of knowledge for our profession,” Moritz said. “My forte is facing the unknown and planning its navigation. I’m 100-percent committed and privileged to share my strengths as Vice Chair in service of ICF and humanity flourishing.”
These personnel changes will have no bearing on the nomination and election process for the 2014 ICF Global Board, which is now underway. Members of the ICF Nominating Committee will continue to accept nominations until August 23, 2013, at 5 p.m. (New York). There are two open 2014 Board seats, as well as the position of ICF Chair.
