CIBER Staff Update
CIBER will have a new executive director upon Gerry Muellers move to
Connecticut for his new position with the Financial Accounting Standards
Board. Douglas L. MacLachlan, Professor of Marketing and International
Business and the Associate Dean for Academic Programs at the Business
School, will begin his closer association with CIBER in the fall.
Specializing in marketing research and management, retailing, and
forecasting, Professor MacLachlan is not new to CIBER. He was a member of
the UW team that went to Vladivostok in August 95 as part of the Schools
Partnership for Management Education Program.
Professor Richard W. Moxon will resume his position as CIBER Faculty
Director beginning in June. Dick has been on a much deserved sabbatical
leave during the 1995 -96 academic year. Welcome back Dick!
Mark P. Nassutti, International Career Specialist, resigned on April 30,
1996. Mark worked with CIBER and the Business Career Center for two years
and was a tremendous asset to the School. We congratulate Mark on his new
position with a Dallas-based education program company, Voyager Expanded
Learning, and we wish him the very best in this new opportunity.
CIBER will say farewell to three Visiting scholars at the end of this
quarter. Each of them has made his mark here in the Business School and we
will be sorry to see them leave. The graduating Scholars are Mr. Hiroshi
Inui of ORIX Corporation (Japan); Mr. Hee Yong Park of LG Group (Korea);
and Mr. Makoto Takayama of Yamanouchi Pharmaceutical Corporation (Japan).
European Union Visit
Professor Kathy Dewenter of the Department of Finance recently returned
from a two-week trip to Europe as part of the European Union Visitors
Program. The purpose of the trip was to discuss the prospects for European

visit, she had almost 50 interviews with government officials, academics,
bankers and consultants in Brussels, London, Frankfurt and Bonn.

Russia Partner Program Update
The President of the Far Eastern State Technological Institute or FESTI
(the name has been charged from FETI to FESTI) , Gennadiy Lazarov,
recently spent ten days at the UW to continue program planning with UW
Project Director Richard Moxon. During one of many meetings with UW
officials while in Seattle, Lazarov and Dean William Bradford signed an
agreement between the Business School and FESTI to establish an exchange
program for the Russian track of the Certificate of International Studies
in Business (CISB) undergraduate program. We expect two UW undergraduate
students to travel to Russia for one quarter during the 1996 - 1997
academic year, while two FESTI undergraduate students will come to the
Gordon Aamot, head of the Business School library, left on May 11, 1996
for a two week visit to FESTI. While in Vladivostok, Gordon will continue
working on a library development project at FESTI. Funded by CIBERs USIA
grant, Gordon and the UW Libraries recently hosted Tatyana Grekhova,
Director of the FESTI Library, during a one month residency at the UW.
Following Grekhovas stay in Seattle,Gordons upcoming visit to Vladivostok
is not only designed as an opportunity for the UW to directly evaluate and
assist FESTI as they restructure and modernize their library, but also to
promote regional inter-library coordination within the Primorskiy region.
Gordon will speak at a Regional Libraries Conference in Vladivostok, as
well as visiting various library facilities throughout the city. We hope
this trip will provide the UW Libraries with strengthened ties to
libraries throughout the Primorskiy region and access to valuable library
materials and information for UW students and faculty.

Studies are sponsoring a conference, A World of Cities: Problems and
