This is definitely a well-deserved appointment. I have heard of Tim and was opportuned to meet him during a seminar presentation he made in my graduate school on global health management. I can remeber clearly how he made a strategic presentation, and the insightful responses to clarifications sought and questions raised. The HNP unit of the World Bank will surely be proud of their new Director. Tim, please use your wealth of knowledge and experience and turn around the unit. Congratulations!
