Romilly Greenhill is our CEO, beginning in November 2023.
Previously, Romilly was ONE’s UK director. Romilly started her career at the Ugandan Finance Ministry, where she was responsible for allocating the extra money gained through debt cancellation and good quality aid. This inspired her to campaign on both issues in subsequent roles at the New Economics Foundation and ActionAid. She was also a policy expert for the 2005 Make Poverty History campaign.
She then moved to lead DFID’s work on aid transparency, starting and then running the International Aid Transparency Initiative (IATI). Romilly also spent six years as a senior research fellow and team leader at the Overseas Development Institute (ODI), leading the institution’s work on development finance and financing the ‘leave no-one behind’ agenda.
