NEW YORK, Feb. 2 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Board of Directors of ORBIS International is pleased to announce the appointment of Edward (Ned) Cloonan as President of the New York-based non-profit organization.

"We are very fortunate to have Ned join ORBIS as President at this important time in the organization's history.

His 30 years of management and international experience is exactly what is needed to help position ORBIS to grow. We are confident that ORBIS has a bright future with Ned Cloonan as President," said A. L. Ueltschi, chairman of ORBIS International.
