Welcoming Our New Research Director

Giorgi Khishtovani

We are delighted to welcome Giorgi Khishtovani to our team, as our new Research Director. 

Giorgi brings with him eight years of sound experience in public, private and non-governmental sectors in Georgia and abroad, as a lecturer, trainer, consultant, researcher, and project manager. 

Prior to joining PMC Research, Giorgi worked as programs director at the Shota Rustaveli National Science Foundation (SRNSF). In addition, during his time in the position of head of research at the Institute of Development of Freedom of Information (IDFI), he successfully led several research projects. Meanwhile, Giorgi also serves as an associate professor at the Business School of Ilia State University. 

We are confident that Giorgi will excel in his new role which will entail managing research and analysis, quality control, fundraising and communication strategies, particularly given his impressive experience of working with international organizations such as the World Bank, the Council of Europe, UNDP, and GIZ. 

Giorgi takes over from Maya Grigolia, to whom we convey our sincere gratitude for making such a significant contribution to the organization’s development. We wish her every success in her work as a researcher at ISET Policy Institute.
