ISM’s change at the top
May 18, 2012
Under Paul Novak’s leadership, ISM experienced a major change in governance, global expansion and the creation of new programs and services for supply management professionals.
While we join the Institute for Supply Management in its praise for its outgoing CEO, we welcome the news that the top position will be filled by Thomas W. Derry, effective July 30, 2012.
Derry is currently vice president and chief operating officer at the Association for Financial Professionals (AFP) in Bethesda, Maryland, a $23 million association serving 17,000 corporate treasury and finance professionals in North America and more than 100,000 online registered readers worldwide. In his role with AFP, Derry is responsible for strategic planning and development, including U.S. and Canadian membership organizations and two wholly owned, for-profit U.K. subsidiaries. He has experience in all organizational functions, including advocacy, finance, human resources, sales, product development, publications, certification, education and training, conference production and marketing. Prior to joining AFP in 2003, Derry was with LexisNexis Group in Dayton, Ohio.
Early in 2011, current ISM CEO Novak announced his plans to retire, providing ample time for ISM’s Board of Directors to conduct a comprehensive search for his successor.
LM wishes Paul the best of luck with his new pursuits, and we look forward to working with ISM’s transition team in the coming months.
