The Executive Board of IFATCA regrets to announce the resignation of Mr. Patrik Peters, IFATCA President & Chief Executive Officer, effective 1 March 2019.
In a letter to the IFATCA Member Associations, Mr. Peters explained that personal circumstances no longer allow him to fully focus on the needs of the Federation. Over the past 13 years, Mr. Peters has held several positions on the Executive Board, including the post of President and Chief Executive Officer for the last 5 years. As such, we are humbled by and grateful for his long dedication to our Federation and commitment to the air traffic control profession.
Mr. Peters took this decision in full coordination with the Executive Board. We therefore expect the transition to be smooth, despite the fact that Mr. Peters’ input and experience will leave a void. In accordance with our constitution, the responsibilities of the President and Chief Executive Officer will automatically transfer to the Deputy President until the next annual conference.
The e-mail address [email protected] will remain active for the foreseeable future for personal messages to Mr. Peters. For issues addressing the Federation, kindly contact the IFATCA Office at [email protected] or the Deputy President at [email protected]
Our Member Associations will formally elect a successor to Mr. Peters at our Annual Conference in Costa Rica, from May 20-24, 2019. The outcome of the elections of the Executive Board will be communicated in due time.
On behalf of the IFATCA Executive Board,
