Oikocredit strengthens leadership with new Executive Committee
The new committee comprises existing Managing Board members and newly appointed directors and will oversee implementation of the cooperative’s 2022-2026 strategy
Social impact investor and worldwide cooperative Oikocredit has enhanced its leadership with the creation of a new Executive Committee.
The Executive Committee comprises four statutory and five non-statutory members and will replace Oikocredit’s Managing Board on 1 July 2022. The committee has been created from existing Managing Board members and new directors appointed from within the organisation.
The Executive Committee's four statutory members are: Managing Director Mirjam ‘t Lam; Director of Finance & Risk Gwen van Berne; Director of Inflow & Business Enablers Patrick Stutvoet; and the Director of Impact Investments (to be appointed).
Non-statutory members of the Executive Committee are: Director of Accounting & Control Beja Morren; Director of Investor Relations Lydia Tomitova; Director of Specialised Finance & Community Building Hans Perk; Director of Strategy & Sustainable Impact Ging Ledesma; and Director of People & Development Wilma Straatman.
Objectives for the new leadership structure include augmenting the organisation’s decision-making processes, driving the implementation of the 2022-2026 strategic plan, and safeguarding the cooperative’s going concern and focus on sustainable social impact in support of its mission.
To further amplify its dedication to creating social impact, Oikocredit’s 2022-2026 strategy focuses on empowering and connecting communities in our outflow countries through community-focused projects, in addition to current focus sectors of financial inclusion, agriculture and renewable energy.
The strategy focuses on bringing together members of our investor community in an impact-making movement, and connecting our outflow and inflow communities by facilitating a more direct connection between the two communities.
More information on the Executive Committee members can be found on our website here from 1 July.
