Washington, DC – The Global Fund for Children today announced the appointment of Neil Ghosh as the organization’s executive vice president. Ghosh is also the board chair of Youth Resound and was the founding president of SNV USA.
“We are delighted to welcome Neil Ghosh to GFC,” said Susan Goodell, CEO. “He is a thought leader, convener and implementer with more than 20 years’ experience in strategy, fundraising, advocacy, brand building, program management and external relations.”
Ghosh’s childhood experiences in Kolkata, India, spurred his involvement in the international development field, and his experience and expertise span the nonprofit, government, philanthropic and private sectors. Throughout his career, Ghosh has led many strategic operations to advance goals in development, diplomacy and defense.
Ghosh said, “I am excited to join The Global Fund for Children and to be part of a team that transforms the lives of millions of children. Most importantly, GFC grassroots partners are working every day on global issues—from child trafficking, to child labor, to girls’ education—and we have to work with global citizens, the private sector and public and civic society to address them. My childhood experience in Kolkata has taught me that working with grassroots organizations is the only way to reach vulnerable children.”
Ghosh has successfully launched and grown both nonprofit and for-profit operations, building internal structures, teams, business models and strategies to reach organizational goals. He is a Certified Management Consultant with an MBA in international business and an MS in management information systems, and he has been featured in print, broadcast, and online media in the United States and abroad.
