It is with great pleasure that we would like to announce that Mr. Fabio Corvaglia will become the next Head of School at International School of Bologna from August 2019 following a comprehensive search process.

International School of Bologna selected CIS Leadership Searches, represented by Pauline O’Brien, Director of Career & Recruitment Services, to lead the search for a new Head of School.

Working in close collaboration with the ISB Board and Search Committee, 
CIS carefully evaluated all applicants, matching the skills, experiences and philosophies of the candidates against the needs of the school. Contending candidates were personally video-interviewed by CIS and reviewed before being invited to Bologna for final interview. 

During his visit to Bologna, Mr. Corvaglia demonstrated that he will be a wonderful fit for the ISB profile and culture and has the qualities to lead ISB into the next stage of its development. The Board and the Search Committee are really looking forward to welcoming him for the next school year and working together to build a wonderful future for ISB. 

On his appointment, Mr. Corvaglia commented that “Embarking on finding a new position is always challenging for an international educator. However, my experience with CIS was very positive throughout the entire process. From the initial vacancy post on the CIS website, which was quite informative, to the quick response time by the CIS team, it was obvious that I was dealing with a very professional organization. Pauline O'Brien, who led the search, was very knowledgeable about the school and kept to her set timeline. In addition, Pauline was quick to reply to my queries. I truly appreciated the effort that went into matching my skill set with ISB's needs. I am looking forward to joining the ISB team along with continuing to build my personal and school relationship with CIS.”

Filippo Testoni, Business Manager at ISB, shared on behalf of the school and Search Committee that "The process for hiring the new Head of School is always a very challenging and delicate matter, especially for a school like ISB where many things are happening. CIS, in particular Pauline O’Brien, was very efficient in understanding our needs and our vision, presenting us with very qualified and appropriate applicants. ISB is looking forward to starting the new school year with Mr. Corvaglia as Head of School - we all are very excited."
