Indeed, you have been the face of IESC for well over a decade. Beginning with your work with IESC in Costa Rica, as Chief of Party in Jordan, Sri Lanka, and Egypt, and having had the vision to include two additional practice areas—IT (Geekcorps) and Financial Services, you led very successful and important field projects and gained the necessary experience to lead IESC to become the organization it is today.”
