Our Moldovan Alumni Association is very proud to report that Igor Corman, a 1997 graduate of a 17-week Executive Program at the Marshall Center, was elected speaker of Moldova's Parliament last week. Corman, 43, has served in Parliament since 2009 as Chairman of the Committee for Foreign Policy and European Integration. He previously served as Moldova's Ambassador to Germany (2004-2009) and attended a September 2008 Marshall Center Distinguished Alumni Conference on Combating Weapons of Mass Destruction, among several other Marshall Center sponsored events. Prior to his ambassadorial appointment, he served as a career diplomat in Moldova's foreign service. He also earned a PhD. in History from Romania's Iasi University in 1994.
