Bond employs staff to coordinate and support the activities of the network.

Chief executive

Romilly Greenhill is our CEO, beginning the post in November 2023.

Romilly was previously UK Director at the ONE Campaign for six years, leading successful campaigns on global health, education, and development finance, and working actively with bond and other NGO networks. Prior to joining ONE, Romilly spent six years as a Senior Research Fellow and Team Leader at ODI, leading the institution’s work on development finance, including financing the Sustainable Development Goals and the ‘Leave No-One Behind’ agenda. She has also worked as an Aid Transparency Team Leader at DFID, initiating and then running the International Aid Transparency Initiative, and embedding development effectiveness principles throughout the department’s work.

Romilly was an ODI Fellow in the Ugandan Finance Ministry, where she worked to spend the debt relief money released from the early HIPC initiative on education and health, and negotiating with donors on behalf of the Ugandan Government. This inspired her to take up subsequent policy advisor roles in the New Economics Foundation and ActionAid, advocating actively for more and better development finance for low and middle-income countries. She was one of the lead policy experts for the 2005 Make Poverty History campaign, helping to secure historic agreements on aid and debt cancellation. She also worked as a Governance Advisor, Southeast Asia, for ActionAid, supporting advocacy and campaigns across the region, especially in Cambodia.
