Markus Kissler-Patig Begins Tenure as Gemini Observatory's Director

30 July 2012

Today, Dr. Markus Kissler-Patig begins his tenure as the Gemini Observatory Director. This marks an important event for the Observatory and comes at a time when we are poised to deliver an exciting new suite of scientific capabilities to the community. I am confident that Markus will bring the necessary leadership, vision and innovative ideas to meet the challenges the observatory faces. I welcome Markus and look forward to implementing some of the innovative ideas he has for Gemini. I know the Observatory staff will give him their full support. I also thank Nancy Levenson for her strong leadership over the past several months as Interim Director.
