News from fmi*igf National Office

News From National Office 2Is spring really upon us? One cannot be quite sure. One day it is 7⁰ above and the next 23⁰ below… the snow is either melting or it's snowing again! Whatever the weather, FMI National is still rolling full steam ahead; tackling existing projects, taking on new initiatives, and planning for an exciting future.

The fmi*igf Board of Directors is pleased to announce the appointment of Christopher Egan as its new Chief Executive Officer. Chris has been with FMI National since 2012 in the role of National Manager, Business Development, where he transformed sponsorship and rejuvenated the content of fmi*igf's two national events, PD Week and PSMW. Christopher has been instrumental in building stronger partnerships with fmi*igf's key stakeholders and in increasing sponsorship revenue for the betterment of the organization. The National Office staff was delighted to welcome Chris as their new commander-in-chief.
