In memoriam Carol Tello

12 August 2020

Dear IFA members,

We are deeply saddened to inform you that our USA Branch President, Carol Tello, passed away suddenly and unexpectedly on Sunday from natural causes. Carol will be missed by all of us. Our heartfelt condolences are extended to her family and to her partners and colleagues at Eversheds Sutherland.

Carol was an active member and frequent speaker at our Annual Congresses. She has served in many other capacities at IFA, including as Vice President of the Washington DC Region, on the Executive Committee of the USA Branch, and most recently as President of the USA Branch. She was also one of the founders of our Women of IFA Network (WIN). 

IFA is most grateful for her invaluable contribution to our association. We will remember Carol as an amiable IFA friend with whom it was a privilege and a pleasure to work and talk. Our thoughts are with her family.

Jean-Blaise Eckert
Secretary General IFA
