Rosien Herweijer joins Euforic as Managing Director

The Euforic Board has appointed Ms. Rosien Herweijer to a part time role as Managing Director of Euforic. She took up her post on 2 February, 2009.

Rosien worked freelance the past two years in Brussels, specializing in learning, change management and diversity in development organizations. She brings a wealth of development practice and management to Euforic, from her previous roles at PSO and posts in the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs, SNV and UNDP.

Her prior role as Director of PSO Capacity Development is particularly relevant to Euforic – she brings us hands-on experience as a manager of a small NGO in development, covering all dimensions of the job including finance, personnel, communication, fundraising and strategic management.

Accepting her new position, Rosien told the Euforic Board “what I like about Euforic is that it uses technology - the Internet - for learning and sharing in development.”

Peter Ballantyne, Euforic interim manager and director since November 2005, will continue to work with Euforic in a senior programmatic role.
