Emergency Nutrition Network announces its first ever CEO

ENN is delighted to announce the appointment of its first CEO. Nigel Tricks will join the organisation in September 2022. 

Nigel Tricks has led international aid agencies in Africa and Asia over the last 30 years.  He has overseen large scale humanitarian responses, including Concern Worldwide’s response to the 2005 Niger Nutrition crisis and Oxfam’s responses to the Horn of Africa drought crises of 2011 and 2016/17.  He has also managed long-term development programmes and campaigns for systemic change.  For the last four and a half years, he has been based in Nairobi as the Norwegian Refugee Council’s Regional Director for East Africa and Yemen.   

Commenting on his new appointment Nigel said

“I am familiar with ENN’s extraordinary reputation and the huge respect all stakeholders have for it.  I am excited and humbled to take up this role as its first CEO. I look forward to working with the team to build strategies that enable us to support those at the frontline in the battle against malnutrition. I’m also looking forward to representing this creative and productive organisation in a time of huge challenge for the global nutrition sector, the wider humanitarian community, and for those facing the overlapping crises of conflict, climate shocks, and COVID-19.”   

He continued


“I am motivated by helping organisations to be curious and creative in exploring new routes to greater impact; challenging the status quo with evidence, analysis and a networked approach to influence the way essential services are delivered. Helping organisations develop new visions and strategies to differentiate themselves in delivering impact has been a core part of my work over the last 15 years.”

 
Chair of the Trustee Board of ENN, Graham MacKay said

“Over the last three decades, ENN has been led by a team of peers who had day-to-day responsibility for running ENN. We felt that the time was now right to welcome a CEO with an empowering leadership style and senior representation experience who felt as passionately as we do, someone who had leadership experience in international nutrition, food systems or health and shares our commitment to learning and innovation. We’re delighted to have Nigel join us at such a challenging time for global food security.”
