April 29, 2008 -- BICSI's executive director David C. Cranmer has tendered his resignation, citing personal reasons.
"David has contributed to the success of BICSI in many ways, and we will certainly miss his leadership skills," said Edward J. Donelan, BICSI's president. "The officers of BICSI have accepted his willful resignation, effective immediately."
Betty Eckebrecht, the association's current chief financial officer, has been appointed as acting executive director. "Betty has proven her leadership skills with BICSI in the past as interim executive director and continues to be an excellent CFO of BICSI," said Donelan.
To undertake the process of selecting a new executive director, the association has established a search committee under the leadership of Brian Hansen, BICSI's president-elect.
"At this time we look forward to the future with an opportunity to all work together and maintain our directions with the BICSI strategic plan, the BICSI NxtGEN business plan and our outreach program," concluded Donelan. "Most important to BICSI is adherence to our core purpose: advancing the knowledge and success of our members, their customers, and the information transport industry."
