Alex Haimann Gets his MBA and Running for APS VP

Congratulations to Alex Haimann who received his MBA last month from Olin Business School, Washington University in St. Louis!

Alex is very well known, liked and respected in the stamp collecting world and is a candidate for the American Philatelic Society (APS) Board of Vice Presidents along with Mick Zais and Yamil Kouri.

Mick, Yamil and Alex write, "As APS Vice Presidents, we will bring our diverse organizational leadership experiences in and outside of the hobby to enhance the firm foundation of excellent APS member services supporting local stamp clubs, education, new collector outreach, and research through the American Philatelic Research Library."

They go on to say, "Each of us developed our passion for stamp collecting in childhood. The thrill of adding a new item to our collection, learning about different areas of the hobby and meeting other collectors continues to drive our commitment to philately in all its forms. American philately is blessed to have the APS, an organization with a rich 126-year history representing the structural backbone of our hobby from its inception to the present day. As three lifelong stamp collectors with over 70-years of cumulative APS membership between us, we would be honored to serve the society and its members as APS Vice Presidents.
