It is a pleasure to announce another milestone in the distinguished history of the International Alliance for Biological Standardization (IABS); the hiring of an Executive Director. For the first time in the 64-year history of IABS, the Board of Directors established an executive position to help oversee IABS operations.
I am pleased to announce that on March 1, 2019 Mr. Phillippe Sabot started his tenure as the first IABS Executive Director.
Mr. Sabot brings a wealth of experience to the this position, most recently serving as Head of international Regulatory Affairs for Boehringer Ingelheim Animal Health. His IABS-related experiences include serving as IABS-EU Secretary since 2016. He has been extensively involved in international collaborations with many organizations and his full biosketch is located on the IABS Website at https://iabs.org/index.php/documents/biosketchs.
Mr. Sabot will meet with the IABS Executive Committee for the first time on April 1, 2019. The Executive Committee, the Board of Directors and I are looking forward to working with him.
Please join me in welcoming him to the IABS Executive Director position!
DVM IABS President
