Dear Friends and Colleagues:
After 27 years of continuous service, as Management Adviser and consultant, I will be leaving the CGIAR Secretariat/Fund Office at the end of 2010. It has been a pleasure and a privilege to be associated with the CGIAR over the years and work with scores of wonderful people. I thank all of you for your friendship, support and encouragement.
The highlight of my professional career has been to contribute in some small ways to the evolution of the CGIAR system as one of its “foot soldiers.” I have enjoyed the challenges I faced, from setting up the first electronic communication network, organizing the first management reviews and leadership courses to conducting studies and taking part in numerous evaluations and reform initiatives. Most of all, I enjoyed being a member of a family with a distinguished track record and much promise of the same for the future.
I plan to remain active professionally, doing research and working as consultant on organization development, governance and evaluation. For the time being I will be based in Washington, D.C. In the future my wife and I plan to split our time between the United States and Turkey.
My very best wishes for the future,
