POTOMAC FALLS, Va. --  AWI Board of Directors reviewed the AWI Executive Vice President Search Committee's report and recommendation of Doug Hague as Philip Duvic's successor effective January 1, 2020.

Following the board's unanimous vote on that recommendation, Directors enthusiastically endorsed Hague in his new role as the AWI EVP. Duvic has been associated with AWI since November 2000 and was appointed as executive vice president in 2005. Hague held the title of AWI Education Director since July 2016.

Prior to the Board's vote, Doug Mock, chair of the EVP Search Committee connected to the board meeting by teleconference call and reported that nearly 80 applicants were received and reviewed in the selection process which resulted in a selection of  three qualified finalist EVP candidates.

Each of the three finalist candidates was interviewed by the EVP Search Committee in face to face meetings. At the conclusion of those interviews, the EVP Search Committee selected Hague as their recommended EVP candidate for consideration by the AWI Board of Directors. 

In September through December, Duvic and Hague will be working together to ensure a successful transition into his new role as the AWI Executive Vice President. That transition process will include a number of face-to-face meetings and conference calls, some of which will include many AWI members of the AWI staff team. See http://www.awinet.org.
