Matt rejoins the Aga Khan Foundation (AKF) UK as its new Chief Executive Officer, having previously held the position of Director of Programmes. For the last three years, Matt has led the foundation's work in India. In his new role, Matt will expand the foundation's partnerships in the UK and Europe and build greater public awareness about the work of the broader Aga Khan Development Network (AKDN).
"It is a privilege to lead AKF in the UK after three exciting years in India. Since the UK office was established in 1973, we have raised hundreds of millions of pounds for development initiatives across Central and South Asia, in East and West Africa, and in the Middle East to improve community resilience and the quality of life for millions of people. I am thrilled by the opportunities we have to deepen and diversify support for the range of communities AKDN serves in 30 countries and look forward to raising awareness about this important work."
Matt has a PhD and MA in European History from Claremont Graduate University in Los Angeles.
