PIR Center President's Memo from August 31, 2014

31 August, 2014, Moscow. PIR PRESS. Earlier today, PIR Center's President Dr. Vladimir A. Orlov sent a memo to PIR Center's staff, alimni, and friends, informing them about his decision to conclude his duties as PIR Center's CEO. The key points of this memo follow:

"Some changes in PIR Center’s leadership will become effective as soon as September 1.

"This, however, will be a gradual procedure to provide the smoothest transition possible, to be fully completed only in six months from now. Even then, it is my intention to keep my positions at PIR Center's Executive Board and journal's Editorial Board, if not objected by other Board members, as well at the Trialogue Club International. It will be up to the Board to shape the details of this transition procedure, and I am committed to start working as soon as today together with other Board members on it, providing my recommendations and sharing my experience.

"It is in my plans that this transition period, when completed, should be followed by my fixed-term consultancy position with PIR Center on a specific project and a sabbatical.

"My decision is not spontaneous indeed and is largely explained by a simple fact that I spent twenty years - and already more than twenty years… that is two decades of my life - devoted to one organization, PIR. Being the "founding father" brings certain privileges, but also a risk of repeating yourself. I have always seen PIR development as my responsibility, but never as a life-long commitment. Now, when PIR has matured and got worldwide recognition and unquestionably high reputation, it is time for me to go further.   

"In a month from now, on October 4, all friends and alumni of PIR Center will have an opportunity to celebrate its 20th anniversary at a special ceremony in Moscow. I will be more than happy if, in the coming six months of transition, we will combine the festive mood with the business-as-usual mode, looking creatively into the future. I am grateful to those friends who have expressed their understanding of my decision and have provided strong commitment and support to PIR Center’s young and energetic team. This team deserves to be trusted and supported. It is this young team that is the source of PIR Center’s further creativity, dynamism, and development. 

  

Vladimir Orlov...

and for many of you - Volodya
