A message from our Board Chair:

Dear Accountable Now Members,

I am delighted to announce that the new Executive Director of Accountable Now will be Ms. Rocio Moreno Lopez, and she will start at the end of January 2018 in Berlin.

Rocio Moreno Lopez Incoming Executive Director

Rocio is a national of Mexico who has been working internationally for many years, and she brings an enormous amount of experience as a global civil society advocate for accountability. The Board welcomes her to lead Accountable Now as we drive forward the exciting components of our strategy.

Most recently she has been working on consultancy assignments on citizen participation, capacity building and impact evaluation in countries such as Kenya, Macedonia, Kazakhstan and Mexico for (amongst others) Open Society, MacArthur, Ford and Hewlett Foundations. Previously, amongst other positions, she was Global Co-ordinator for the Global Movement for Budget Transparency, Accountability and Participation (BTAP), an organisation combining activists and organisations working on public finance and budget accountability, where she led member engagement strategy, co-ordinated advocacy strategy and built strategic partnerships with national and international organisations.

Transition arrangements are being made between Nick Roseveare, the Interim Executive Director, and Rocio to ensure a smooth and orderly handover. 

I am sure you will join me in welcoming Rocio, when you have a chance to communicate directly.

BG

Brendan Gormley
Chair of the Board
