The Institute for Academic Management (IAM) Ltd. has announced that Mr. Christian Brutzer will be the International Co-Chair for the Inaugural IAM-USA Dual Education Symposium, scheduled for March 25th-28th, 2020, at the Trump National Doral, in Miami, Florida, USA.
In July of 2019, Christian Brutzer became president of Ivoclar Vivadent North America. Brutzer is also the global head for Ivoclar Vivadent Asia/Pacific region and a member of Ivoclar Vivadent AG, Liechtenstein’s corporate management board. He maintains these positions. A lawyer by education, Brutzer, who was born in Germany, furthered his experience during a post-graduate program in Japan. He has been in the dental industry since 1989, serving in various executive management positions in Europe, Southeast Asia, China, Japan, Australia, and the USA. He speaks multiple languages, including German, English, and Japanese.
With a foundation built on an apprenticeship, so obtained in the profession of a “Speditions Kaufmann,” positioned today as a “Business Apprentice,” Brutzer aligns his impressive academic achievements and career experience with unwavering enthusiasm. His desire to see more young people, both nationally and internationally, enter into the realm of dual-education by way of academics, apprenticeships, and lifelong learning, is the force behind his commitment to take on this role.
IAM is pleased to welcome Mr. Brutzer as their International Co-Chair for the 2020-2021 term, especially as the global industry of healthcare is in such dire need of a skilled workforce for today, for tomorrow, and for the future. Looking back on a statement released by the World Health Organization (WHO) – Brazil 2013: “The world will be short of 12.9 million health-care workers by 2035; today, that figure stands at 7.2 million.” A WHO report released at that time warned that the findings – if not addressed now – will have serious implications for the health of billions of people across all regions of the world.
