Mohamed Mezghani Appointed New ESAE President

10th June 2024

The European Society of Association Executives (ESAE) recently announced the appointment of Mohamed Mezghani, Secretary-General of the International Association of Public Transport (UITP), as its new President.

He succeeds Mike Morrissey, CEO of the European Cancer Organisation (ECO), who served since June 2021 and will remain on ESAE’s Board as past president.

Under Morrissey’s leadership, ESAE hosted its first event at the European Parliament, developed the Association Leaders’ Forum at IBTM, and organised the European Association Summit & Awards 2024. These efforts significantly enhanced ESAE’s growth and member engagement.

Mike Morrissey said: “Mohamed is a fantastic and globally recognised leader in the community of trade Associations and professional societies. With his expertise as the Secretary-General of UITP and his recent experience as one of ESAE’s Vice Presidents, I have no doubt he will bring ESAE to new heights. I look forward to supporting Mohamed’s leadership in the next chapter of ESAE’s journey and thank UITP for allowing him to take up this very important volunteer role.”

Mohamed Mezghani, an ESAE board member since 2021, played a pivotal role in launching the European Association Awards in 2023. His vision aligns with ESAE’s mission to elevate standards in association management.

Mezghani said: “It is an honour to be appointed President of ESAE. I congratulate Mike Morrissey for his
successful tenure and his leadership in growing and professionalising the Association. I
thank him and the Board for their trust and support. I look forward to working with and for
ESAE members, partners and staff to increase the relevance of Associations and make them
more influential.”
