Dear Members of the Anatolia Community,

I am pleased to announce that the Board of Trustees of Anatolia College has appointed Dr. Panos Vlachos as the 11th President of Anatolia, effective as of noon, on Friday, April 19th, 2013.  The vote was unanimous.

The search process, involved a careful, thorough, global search for the best candidates. Ultimately three finalists were interviewed by the Search Committee of the Board, co-chaired by trustees Chip Elfner and Serge Hadji-Mihaloglou, visited campus in Thessaloniki and met with a broad range of cabinet members, school leaders, students, parents, alumni, and Greek trustees.  

Anatolia has been very fortunate in its leaders and in having a world-wide community that supports this exceptional and unique school. The Board is very pleased to have secured a leader with very strong academic and administrative experience, broad knowledge of the institution at all levels, a deep loyalty to it and a vision for its future that is well thought out, exciting and achievable.

Having worked closely with Dr. Vlachos during his term as Acting President, I am confident that he will continue to provide outstanding leadership for the entire Anatolia community – students, faculty, staff, parents and alumnae/i.

Dr. Panos Vlachos was appointed Acting President of Anatolia College in August 2012. Prior to this, he served in a variety of administrative leadership positions at The American College of Thessaloniki (“ACT”) for the past 15 years. In 2009 he was appointed Vice President for Academic Affairs at Anatolia and Provost of ACT serving also as the institutional-wide chief of Libraries and Information Technology.  

Dr. Vlachos, has taught for over 20 years at the graduate and undergraduate level. He has supervised a number of large-scale Information Technology projects and his academic research has been published in the Proceedings of the American Mathematical Society, the Journal of Applicable Analysis, the Journal of Dynamic Systems and Applications and other academic journals. He holds a B.S. in Mathematics from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, an MSc in Mathematics and a Ph.D in Applied Sciences from the University of Rhode Island in the USA.
