Tjerk Wagenaar has started December 1st as Cordaid’s new Chief Financial Officer. Tjerk will work ad interim until July 2020.
Professionally Tjerk has always liked to contribute to societal goals. As a consultant at McKinsey, as manager and CFO at NS Reizigers and at SNV, BU director at Eneco and the last years as CEO of Natuur en Milieu (Dutch environmental NGO).
Tjerk Wagenaar: “Sustainability is flowing in my veins and I like to work together with others, who are also inspired to make a difference in people’s lives. This is urgently needed, given cf the UN – SDGs and the Green encyclical Laudato Si’. It is a challenging, complex, hard-working and often rewarding process and Cordaid a.o. is well-positioned and doing a great job! Therefore I am looking forward to working with Cordaid. I like to bring to the table broad financial and general experiences and passion. So I hope together with you to contribute to more Cordaid impact and to becoming financially future proof“.
I very much look forward to work together in further strengthening our organization in delivering solid humanitarian and development results and in becoming a financially healthy outfit.
Kees Zevenbergen, Cordaid CEO: “I am assured that Tjerk’s broad financial experience and passion for social change will strengthen our Board. It is great to have him with us.”
