BKR International Worldwide Bulletin
July/August 2020
Letter from the Worldwide Chair
Dear Members,

The Worldwide Board is proud to announce the appointment of BKR’s new Worldwide CEO, Tim Morris (London), effective January 1, 2021. Tim will assume his responsibilities from our current CEO, Howard Rosen , who will be retiring at the end of 2020. Tim’s appointment comes as part of a planned leadership transition that the Worldwide Board has been working on for several years.

Tim brings a broad range of critical skills and attributes to this position. He has served as the EMEA Regional Executive Director for more than five years. He also acted as a mentor to the Asia-Pacific Region’s new Executive Director as he transitioned into his role, and has been an active participant in the CEO and regional executive directors’ annual meetings. He has a deep understanding of our industry, our member firms, and the challenges we face. I know you will join me in congratulating Tim, whose leadership, hard work, vision, initiatives, and experience will help assure BKR International’s continued success.
