13 Twelve years. This is the time I have had the privilege to work with Khosrow in the context of the CPD-EC, first as Editor of the eNewsLetter and later as Chair of the C-PR and Vice-Chair of the CPD. I must testify that Khosrow, as well as Ellis Jacobs before him, have created an environment conducive to collaboration and friendship that has fostered the development of an efficient Division with respect to its mandate: Communication and Publication. During the last twelve years he has spared no effort in completing his numerous tasks, always ready to provide his help to whomever needed it. On a personal note, I wish to express my gratitude to Khosrow for his constant support and friendship. Thanks, Khosrow! Prof. Edgard Delvin (CA) former C-PR Chair ------------------------------------------------------------- The IFCC and CPD committee has benefitted greatly from the chairmanship of Khosrow Adeli over the past six years and he has left big shoes to fill. It was my privilege to serve the CPD and the IFCC under his leadership and so the end of his term is viewed with some poignancy. During his term, a number of important initiatives were implemented in the overall IFCC communication and publication strategy and he leaves a substantial legacy for us to build and take forward. We look forward to seeing him again, in another important role in the IFCC in the future. Prof. Tahir Pillay (ZA) former IFCC eNews Editor ------------------------------------------------------------- Khosrow Adeli has a really pleasant personality that makes it very easy to get along with him. This was the first impression I had about him when we first met in person in Buenos Aires in February 2018. Previously, we had only exchanged e-mails, but even in those letters he was very stimulating and encouraging. Since then, I got to know him better and I was happy that he accepted the Honorary membership of the Hungarian Society of Laboratory Medicine and we could share such a joyful and memorable occasion.” Prof. János KAPPELMAYER (HU) eJIFCC Editor ------------------------------------------------------------- CPD will miss his wide experience, dedication to work and commitment with IFCC mission. Khosrow was a true team leader and always had a smart and precise advice for each project or issue. Sometimes, we had to struggle with some really hard situations, but he always managed to solve them with tons of patience and kindness. These kind manners were a personal learning experience for me. I´m thankful to have met him! Dr. Eduardo FREGGIARO (AR) Publications/Distance Learning Coordinator ------------------------------------------------------------- Khosrow is a kind-hearted and brilliant leader, who leaves a legacy of accomplishments and inspiration to the CPD. He was a joy to work with, a pleasure to partner with and it was an honor to serve under his leadership. Thank you, Khosrow, for your long-standing commitment to the CPD and looking forward to seeing you continue to lead success throughout the IFCC, Laboratory Medicine and to Healthcare! Kind regards and with high respect, Tricia Ravalico (US) CPD Corporate Representative ------------------------------------------------------------- Article continued on next page Some words from his colleagues within the CPD ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
