NISE’s new Administrator will be Kas Swerts who’s got excellent qualifications for the responsibilities that this position entails, and has already proven both an enthusiastic commitment and aptitude in the past years, during which Kas has been doing sterling work for NISE.
Kas follows in the footsteps of august predecessors (Luc Boeva and Hanno Brand) and will be a worthy successor to them.
