It was somewhat of a shock to hear of the passing of Randy Hautea a few weeks ago. Randy was with ISAAA for over 20 years, the latter half as the Global Coordinator and SEAsiaCenter. For many, Randy was an important figure, source of information, contact and someone to talk with. Importantly he, through ISAAA, contributed to and facilitated many projects, both financially and in-kind, in the Asia-Pacific region.
I know many, like myself, will have their own stories of having worked with Randy. He will be missed.
