Evidence Action’s Chief Executive Officer, Jeffrey Brown, has announced that he has resigned from the organization, effective November 21, 2016, to pursue other opportunities. Kanika Bahl, Evidence Action’s Board Chair, will serve as acting CEO. Evidence Action will conduct a global search for a new CEO.
It is with lots of pride and no small amount for sadness that I am announcing that I am moving on from Evidence Action. Effective August 2015 I will be the first CEO of the new Global Innovation Fund. Evidence Action today is a strong, competent, visionary, and solid organization ready to enter its next phase. It is so effective and competent thanks to the tireless work of its amazing staff worldwide. You have my deepest gratitude and I will be proud to watch you all make the world better for millions of people from my new perch. Thank you also to the thousands of supporters of Evidence Action. You have given your money and attention to our work, and you have made it possible.
