REMEMBERING GIULIANA BERTIN

Giuliana BertinOn October 17, 2013, Giuliana Bertin, the first woman to be Secretary to the Board and Executive Director of the International Association of Financial Executives Institutes (IAFEI), passed away. Giuliana served IAFEI for more than twenty (20) years, deserving the special recognition accorded to her during the 35th IAFEI World Congress in the Philippines. A talented Italian woman executive, she exuded confidence and was a good communicator liaising with international finance leaders worldwide as she “manned” the day-to-day operations of IAFEI. Her role brought her to different cities of the world where she interacted and developed friendship with all the leaders of member institutes. A woman of grace, she got things done with her tenacity and ability to steer the operational concerns of the premier association of organizations of financial executives. She was survived by her husband Mario, her son, Marco and daughter, Valentina, and three grandchildren. Giuliana will be missed by her international friends at IAFEI.

iafei asian consultations

Initially planned only as a visit to the IAFEI Secretariat office, Chairman Luis Ortiz-Hidalgo’s visit to Manila turned out to be very productive as the IAFEI Asian Member Institutes took advantage of this opportunity to have the IAFEI Asian Consultations where three Asian IAFEI member institutes, namely, JACFO-Japan, VCFO-Vietnam and FINEX-Philippines, participated. Not missing the chance of having an international tax expert in the country, FINEX also invited Chairman Luis as the guest speaker in their General Monthly Meeting (GMM) for August 2013.
