CoDevelopment Canada Welcomes Kirsten Daub as Executive Director

Kirsten DaubThe Board of Directors of CoDevelopment Canada is very pleased to announce the appointment of Kirsten Daub as CoDev’s new Executive Director. Kirsten has been acting ED since July 2015, while our ED Kathryn Janzen went on maternity leave.

Kathryn has decided not to return to CoDev so that she can spend more time with her son.
The Board thanks Kathryn for the skill, energy, and creativity she contributed during her time as ED, and wishes her all the best.

Kirsten brings her enthusiasm, depth of knowledge, and strong connections–to our Partners in the Latin America and Canada–to the Executive Director position. She has been a part of the CoDev team in various capacities since 2003, when she first arrived as a volunteer. She has since filled the roles of Education Program Director, Administrative Director, Café Etico Coordinator and most recently, ED. Kirsten is thrilled to take on this permanent role and continue working to build solidarity between CoDev’s Canadian and Latin American Partners. The Board is excited to continue working with Kirsten in this role as the permanent ED.
