Financial Transparency Coalition Appoints Interim Director​

August 30th, 2017

PRESS RELEASE
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 

New appointee has strong ties to tax and transparency world, plans to hit the ground running

WASHINGTON—The Executive Committee of the Financial Transparency Coalition is pleased to announce the appointment of Savior Mwambwa as Interim Director.

“We’re ecstatic that Savior has decided to join the Coalition at this crucial time,” said Subrat Das, Chair of the Financial Transparency Coalition. “As important policy fights loom in the future, it was essential to find someone who could hit the ground running and already understands the issues at an in-depth level.”

Mr. Mwambwa comes to the FTC after a number of years in civil society, most recently as the International Tax Campaign Manager for ActionAid International. Previously, he worked as Policy and Advocacy Manger at the Tax Justice Network – Africa, an FTC member organization. He also served as Executive Director of the Centre for Trade Policy and Development, a Zambia-based NGO focused on equitable trade policies.

“It’s such an important time to be a part of the effort to stop the bleeding of illicit financial flows, and that’s what made the decision to join the FTC such an easy one,” said Mr. Mwambwa. “As we continue to persuade policymakers to curb things like tax abuse and corruption, the FTC is vital to making sure that the right policies are ultimately enacted. Each new leak and investigation confirms our suspicion that the problem of illicit flows is a global one, which made the chance to work for the global coalition fighting illicit flows an exciting opportunity.”
