November 15th, 2017

PRESS RELEASE

A veteran of the fiscal policy world, new appointee sees opportunity to push transparency issues

WASHINGTON—The Executive Committee of the Financial Transparency Coalition has appointed a new permanent Director. Sargon Nissan has succeeded Interim Director Savior Mwambwa, and was officially introduced at the 7th Financial Transparency Conference in Helsinki, Finland last month.

Mr. Nissan brings years of experience in fiscal policy to the Coalition, most recently as IMF and Finance Programme Manager at the Bretton Woods Project. Prior to that post, he held a variety of positions in the NGO sector and beyond, including stints at the New Economics Foundation, the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales and the United Nations Development Programme in Syria.

“I’m truly excited to help realize the FTC’s goals, as this is such a critical time for our work,” said Nissan. “Starting in this role just as the Paradise Papers were revealed, and ahead of key talks in the European Union on beneficial ownership, means there’s much work to be done and I am looking forward to the challenge immensely.”
