Robert Singer was named secretary general of the World Jewish Congress, the organization's most senior professional position.

“All of the WJC executives who have met Robert have been impressed with his professionalism, insight and vision, and they look forward to working with him in strengthening the WJC’s position as the preeminent representative body of world Jewry,” WJC President Ronald Lauder said in a statement issued Sunday. 

Singer since 1999 has served as director general and CEO of World ORT, an education and vocational training nongovernmental organization. Previously he had worked in the Israeli Prime Minister’s Office for 12 years. He was a lieutenant colonel in the Israeli army.

The choice of Singer, who lives in London, is expected to be ratified at the 14th WJC plenary assembly in Budapest in May.
