Kyeema Welcomes New CEO

In May we celebrate almost 20 years of volunteer leadership from our outgoing Kyeema CEO, Celia Grenning.

Celia has worked tirelessly to take Kyeema from a small NGO working mostly in southern Africa on Newcastle disease control in village chickens, to an organisation supporting the health and prosperity of marginalised communities and their environments in 15 countries. All at Kyeema wish Celia well for the next phase of life and look forward to her continuing volunteer engagement with us in financial management and on our nature-based solutions project in the Pacific.

With Celia’s departure we welcome our new CEO, Anthony (AJ) Carrigan. AJ comes to Kyeema with a career built in change management and development. Over the past 16 years AJ has worked particularly in international development, working with Governments and donors around the world.

AJ is committed to maintaining the foundational work of Kyeema, while working to offer trusted expertise in designing, managing, and monitoring development projects.

“I’m humbled and proud to lead such a long-standing and highly regarded organisation”, says AJ. “Particularly in these difficult times, it is a great privilege to be involved with an organisation founded on science and the longstanding benefits of vaccines and to have the mission to expand the scope and breadth of the good work the team can do.”
