New Secretary-General appointed

Wednesday, 11 December 2013

The Executive Board of the International Panorama Council has appointed a new Secretary-General to ensure a prosperous future of the organization.

We are very happy to be able to introduce Sylvia Alting van Geusau (1988) as our new person in charge. She studied Theatre Studies and Art History at the University of Amsterdam. In 2012 she obtained her MA degree in Art Studies with a thesis on all historical Panoramas in Amsterdam. Her Curriculum Vitae shows she is a panorama professional, and she is well aware of the huge task that is waiting, to turn the professionalization of our organization into a success.

Former Secretary Patrick Deicher was surprised by a radical change in his job with BDO Ltd. (Switzerland). Since August 2013 Patrick is heading BDO Switzerland’s competence center for NGOs. This new function is a great chance and a personal honor. However, it takes far more time and needs complete engagement. This is why Patrick has taken the radical decision to resign as the IPC Secretary-General. Patrick will keep the contact to the organization, however in a different role. He has been elected as a member of the Executive Board. He will act as the treasurer of the association.
