Leadership changes – IMI Board and Investor-State Taskforce

Pierrick LeGoff steps in as Deborah Masucci departs from her role as IMI Board Chair

After joining the IMI Board in 2012 and overseeing its activities as Board Co-Chair for nearly that entire time, Debbie Masucci has departed the IMI Board. We are delighted that she will remain as an Honorary Director, and she stays on as an invaluable part of the Mixed Mode Taskforce.

During her time with IMI, Debbie championed an incredible array of initiatives: IMI expanded certification and specialties; collaborated with the Singapore Ministry of Justice to form the Singapore International Mediation Institute; collaborated with the Florence Chamber of Commerce to form a relationship with the Florence International Mediation Chamber; launched the Global Pound Conference Series; recruited major international ADR providers to be part of the Board; established a centre for international provider organizations to share ideas and collaborate; participated as a delegation to the UNCITRAL WG II on the development of the Singapore Convention; studied on line dispute resolution; adopted training standards and certification of training organizations; established a network for young mediators; and established the Investor State Task Force that is working with UNCITRAL’s WG III.

On a more personal note, Debbie has been an invaluable part of the IMI leadership team. We are grateful to have had her, and happy to have her as a friend.
