Abigail Rupp - Letter from Board of Trustees

Message from the AISB Board Chairperson

Dear AISB Community,


I would like to thank each and every one of you for your support during the recent Director search process. The Board received over sixty applications from highly qualified educational professionals around the world for this position. After a series of Skype interviews with shortlisted candidates, three candidates and their partners were flown to Bucharest so they could spend at least two full days at AISB, meeting members of our community, taking part in discussions, and answering questions. All the candidates met with representatives of the Board, the School Leadership Team, student leadership groups, faculty, staff, and parents, and they were all greatly impressed by the ethos and direction of our school.


The Board had the important task of deciding who will be asked to build on the outstanding legacy Robert Brindley is leaving at AISB. I am thrilled to announce that Peter Welch, the current Director at the International School of Helsinki (also a CEESA member school), was offered the position of Director of AISB, effective August 1, 2019, and that he has accepted with much joy and positive expectation. The Board will work with him and Dr. Brindley to ensure a smooth and productive transition.


I hope you will all join me in wishing Peter and Suzanne Welch and their daughter, Gaby, who will be joining us as a student in HS, a warm welcome to AISB and many successful and fulfilling years ahead leading this amazing school.


Best Wishes,


Abigail Rupp

Chair of the Board of Trustees
