The executive director of World Stamp Show-NY 2016, Donna Richardson, has left the organization, according to a statement issued March 13 by the show’s chairman and president, Wade E. Saadi.

“[Show vice president Steven J. Rod] and I had a meeting today with Donna Richardson, at which time we agreed that she would part ways with World Stamp Show-NY 2016,” Saadi wrote. “Over the past year she has brought enthusiasm and energy which has enhanced and grown our show, and we will always be appreciative to her for the service she has rendered to us.”

In the statement, addressed to the show’s organizing committee and sent to Linn’s Stamp News, Saadi added that the show will seek to fill the vacancy with the new position of executive assistant, working in the show’s office at the Collectors Club in New York City.
