LIFE Board Election Results 2019

19 Apr 2019

Dear Members,

I would like to first thank each and everyone of you who took the time to vote in this year’s Board Elections. I am pleased to report that member participation in this year's Board Elections reached 60%, up from last year’s rate of 54%.  

Second, I would like to express my sincere gratitude to each of the nine Senior LIFE Members who kindly agreed to stand for the Board Elections. We had a great slate of candidates, each of whom would have been welcomed additions to the Board. We are grateful for your continuous support and engagement.

I am pleased to announce that the following five members have been elected, listed by alphabetical order:

  • Rindala Beydoun - Dubai (first term)
  • Mouhammed Choukeir - London (re-elected for a second term)
  • Wissam Kairouz - New York (re-elected for a second term)
  • Francois Kayat - Paris (returning to the Board after 6 years)
  • Wahbe A. Tamari - Geneva (re-elected for a second term)

You can view the full list of our Board members here.

Finally, I would like to express a special thanks to our outgoing Board members: Adel Afiouni (who as a reminder had stepped off from his Board participation in February when he assumed his formal role as a Minister in Lebanon) and Rima Moawad, for all their tireless work and contributions to the Board as well as their ongoing commitment to LIFE. 

Please join me in welcoming the new Board Members and thanking the exiting Board Members as well as all the participants in this process. I look forward to working with the new Board to continuing our efforts and drive to deliver on our strategy and ambitious plans for LIFE. 

Best Regards,
May Nasrallah
Chair of the LIFE Board
