Likhotal officially submitted the announcement of his retirement at the GCI Board meeting in Moscow on 21 October, which was accepted by the Board and signed by GCI Chairman Mikhail Gorbachev.
The Green Cross family thanks Alexander Likhotal for his principled guidance, expert leadership and dedication over his many years of service with Green Cross, during which time the network of Green Cross offices have grown from a dozen countries to over 30.
