IERG Press Release

International Executive Resources Group (IERG)
Principal and Fellow Awards
Global Business Leader Certification Review Committee


Hartford, CT, January 12, 2017 - It is with great pleasure that we announce the Senior International Business Executives who applied and are now certified Global Business Leaders at the Principal or at the Fellow level by the IERG Global Business Leader Certification Review Committee.

The Committee, comprised of a panel of senior third party international executives, reviews and validates each applicant's professional credentials and experiences for the two highest IERG certification levels: Principal and Fellow. The Review Committee rigorously screens all applicants for demonstrated global leadership consistent with the criteria for IERG Principal and Fellow designation. The selection criteria includes evaluating documentation, references and candidate discussion as needed, supporting certification for members who demonstrate meaningful results from leadership positions in the operation and running of IERG and, in the case of Fellow designation, demonstrate meaningful results from leadership positions external to IERG with proven advocacy, influence and thought.

Please warmly welcome our inaugural class of six recipients
