Alexandria, VA, August 27, 2014 - The Flight Safety Foundation announced today that Greg Marshall has joined the headquarters in Virginia as the new Acting Vice President for Global Programs. He will start in this role on September 2, 2014.

In that role, he has overseen the dramatic growth and evolution of the BARS program into the leading audit standard for the mining and resources segment of the industry.
"Bringing Greg to the home office to help during this transition will allow for great synergy between the BARS program and the other technical programs that the Foundation does," stated FSF President and CEO, Jon Beatty.
