Action Against Hunger U.S.A. Appoints New CEO to Address Rising Malnutrition Worldwide

 

Action Against Hunger U.S.A., the world’s hunger specialist, today announced that it has appointed a new CEO, Dr. Charles Owubah, who joins the NGO after nearly 20 years at World Vision. This planned leadership transition is the next step in Action Against Hunger’s strategic plan to create better ways to address life-threatening hunger worldwide.

“We committed to recruiting a new CEO who would accelerate Action Against Hunger’s impact through ever-more efficient, effective and innovative programs that empower nearly 20 million people each year,” said Ray Debbane, Board Chair, Action Against Hunger, U.S.A. “We are fortunate to have found the ideal leader in Dr. Charles Owubah, who brings outstanding experience, analytical rigor, and passion for Action Against Hunger’s world-changing mission. We are delighted to welcome him as CEO.”

“I’m honored to join Action Against Hunger, which is challenging traditional approaches to development by promoting innovative, locally-driven solutions,” Owubah said. “I look forward to working with this talented and increasingly locally-led team to scale evidence-based programs that advance our goal of ending hunger for good, within our lifetimes.”

Dr. Owubah earned his Ph.D. in Natural Resource Management and Policy from Purdue University in the U.S. He was an academic and consultant on food aid management before spending nearly 20 years at World Vision in roles of increasing responsibility. He brings deep technical expertise in collaborating with local communities on sustainable water and food security programs, delivering emergency relief, and promoting child survival across a global footprint.

“It is unacceptable for anyone to go hungry, yet after years of progress, global malnutrition is rising as a result of conflict and climate change,” Owubah said. “I know what it is to feel hunger. As the son of farmers in Ghana, I grew up on the land. I love to plant seeds and nurture their growth—and that includes seeds of hope and resilience among local people and staff in local communities. I have seen that hope is cultivated through evidence-based programs that deliver measurable impact.”

Dr. Owubah will officially take the helm on May 1, 2019 as part of a long-anticipated transition with the current CEO, Andrea Tamburini.

“We want to express our profound appreciation to Andrea Tamburini, who is leaving Action Against Hunger on very solid footing,” Debbane said. “During his tenure, Action Against Hunger opened a regional headquarters in Nairobi, Kenya, piloted new programmatic approaches, and received its 13th consecutive 4-star rating from Charity Navigator.”

Hi everyone! Nice to e-meet you! Here are a few things you should know about me. I am a conscientious, open-minded, adaptable to new experiences, and ambitious Business Development Manager with a Bachelor's Degree in Economics - Banking, Finance, and Accountancy. Through my studies, I've also obtained many naturopathic and nutrition degrees as well. Part-time jobs have added marketing, network marketing, event management, and store management skills to my experience throughout my career. Throughout my career, I have also been a Hotel Manager and owned a Bar/Restaurant & Internet Cafe. My online marketing and social media interactivity experience was gained when I and my husband started a business with an online/organic webshop & healthy lifestyle consultancy. I've improved my English at Cambridge Academy of English - 2003, in Cambridge. I live a conscious lifestyle, and try to protect the ecosystem. Animal lover and capable of helping others without judgment or negative reactions, this is thanked my knowledge in holistic therapies and the naturopathy courses I've followed. I cannot leave for my spiritual growth and the continuous development in alternative and holistic therapies, so I'm learning at Kyron School of New Consciousness, receiving a Bio Energo-therapist diploma. Thanks to all my experiences I've decided to venture into publishing and writing, while also continuing to learn many new things daily. I hope you enjoy reading my hand-picked news and check back for my weekly articles.
