Change in leadership at CISR


SUMMARY: After serving as Director of the Center for International Stabilization and Recovery for 10 years, Dr. Ken Rutherford will be stepping down in January 2020 to accept a full-time teaching position as a tenured professor in the Department of Political Science at James Madison University. While sad to see Ken go, we are grateful for Ken’s leadership and the incredible support he has afforded CISR. We are excited to announce that, beginning in January 2020, Associate Director Dr. Suzanne Fiederlein will become the Interim Director of CISR. Suzanne brings 20 years of experience in mine action management and training programs to her role. While at CISR, she has directed the Senior Managers’ Course in Conventional Weapons Destruction both in the United States and abroad, managed CISR’s “We Love Life” MRE project in Jordan, worked extensively on efforts to enhance the effectiveness of casualty data collection, and currently serves on the IMAS Review Board. Suzanne has been a leader at CISR for many years, and we are excited to see where her leadership and skillset take CISR.
