Annelies joined the European Climate Foundation in November 2022 as the Operations Manager for Platforms. In her role, she helps connect and build bridges between the ECF’s hosted platforms and its operations teams.
She started her professional career in the anti-corruption NGO Transparency International in Berlin. She then worked for more than 10 years in Big4 consulting and the financial sector managing financial crime, risk and compliance projects and guiding teams through extensive organisational changes. Annelies decided to redirect her career again towards a mission-driven organisation and join forces with the ECF to support the work on climate change.
