Funded by partner dues and initiation fees, we run an active organization using a combination of volunteer partners and professional staff. An Executive Committee, consisting of all the people pictured here, meets electronically once a month and is led by the Global Board:

  • Global President: our Chief Executive Officer, providing overall leadership, strategy and direction of the network
  • Secretary/Treasurer: our Company Secretary and Chief Financial Officer, responsible for network governance plus financial planning, management and reporting
  • Presidents of the Americas, EMEA and Asia Pacific: directing IPREX affairs in their respective regions

Four operating committees focus on:

  • Best practices: spreading knowledge throughout the network
  • Partner relations: delivering internal communication, from meetings to the intranet
  • Business development: creating tools and systems that match IPREX services to evolving client demands
  • Marketing: understanding markets and communicating the IPREX message

In support, we employ four professional staff:

  • Executive Director: directing and managing network operations
  • Global Administrator: day to day administration, financial communication, meetings
  • Directors of the Americas, EMEA: managing IPREX affairs in their regions
