Treasurer Bob Hughes who will step down from the Board in June 2018

Our Treasurer Bob Hughes has indicated that due to increasing work commitments, he will step down from the Board at the end of this year. The Executive Committee will now seek to identify candidates to replace him. The decision to appoint a new Board member will be taken at the June Board meeting.

Treasurer, Bob Hughes (Board appointed) joined the Board in 2013 and was elected to the position of Treasurer in February 2015. He has chaired the Finance Committee since then. Bob was a member of the Head of School Search Task Force (2016-2017) which helped to identify our new Head of School Jane McGee as well as working on the Transition Task Force (2017-2018). Previously, Bob served as Chair of the Advancement Committee and as a member of the Finance Committee in 2013-14 and in 2014-2015 chaired the Strategic Management Plan Task Force which worked to produce our Strategy 2020. Prior to joining the Board, Bob was a member of the Advancement Committee in 2011-12. He also served as a member of the Board's School Legal Status Task Force from 2009-10.

Bob has actively worked to improve international school governance in the region by presenting at EARCOS (East Asia Region Council of School Leadership Conference) and at the Governance as Leadership Workshop over many years.

Bob is American and brought a wealth of financial and international business experience to the Board having worked with multinational corporations and local Vietnamese companies, in the IT, financial, aviation, agricultural, and resource business sectors. Bob has lived in Vietnam for over fifteen years and has one child at UNIS Hanoi.

We are indebted to Bob for the many years of dedicated service. His contributions to committees, task forces and Board over the years are greatly appreciated. His commitment to the school is exemplary and his acute business acumen will be deeply missed. On behalf of the Board, I would like to thank Bob for all that he has done and we would like to wish him well in his new endeavours.  

Nguyen Van Hieu
Board Chair (2017-2018)
