Svitlana Kuts succeeeds Alena Tarasova
2020 June 09 - Svitlana Kuts comes to WWF with more than 20 years of experience working at various roles in Ukrainian civil society. She has served as director for a number of organisations, including the Ukrainian Center for Philanthropy and the Ukrainian offices of the International Fundraising Consultancy and dvv-international. Svitlana also brings experience working as a consultant and board member in numerous programmes and initiatives, from Save the Children to USAID, UNDP, Civicus and the Canada Fund for Local Initiatives.
Svitlana's experience and expertise will be particularly useful as we consolidate and expand WWF's presence in Ukraine, which was legally established just last year within the regional framework of WWF Central and Eastern Europe (WWF-CEE).
Svitlana succeeds Alena Tarasova, who left WWF in April to lead sustainability for retailer Silpo, a WWF-CEE partner. We would like to take this opportunity to thank Alena for her years of service in which she developed WWF's presence in Ukraine into a national programme and legal presence.
