Laura Frigenti (former AICS Director) appointed CEO of Global Partnership for Education

WASHINGTON, SEPTEMBER 12 – The Board of Directors of the Global Partnership for Education (GPE) has appointed Laura Frigenti to be the Chief Executive Officer of GPE. She fills the position left vacant following the departure of Alice Albright, who was appointed by the United States government to lead the Millennium Challenge Corporation.

Ms Frigenti has had a wide-ranging career in global development. She spent almost 20 years at the World Bank, working extensively in Africa and Latin America, before a spell as Chief of Staff to the President. Her subsequent leadership roles have included a period as Director General of the Italian Agency for Development and Cooperation (AICS). Her current role is as Global Head of International Development Assistance Services Institute at KPMG. Education has been a theme throughout.

Ms Frigenti brings a breadth of experience and an enduring commitment to education. She has led teams at national and global levels, and in both new and long-established organizations. Her international knowledge and skill as a leader in times of change will, the Board believes, serve GPE well in the coming years.

The incoming Chief Executive will assume her role on 1 December 2022. Until then, Mr Charles North will remain in his position as Acting Chief Executive, thereafter he will resume his role as Deputy Chief Executive.

“Education has been at the heart of my professional life. GPE’s mission to help every child to realize their potential is hugely inspiring to me and as Chief Executive I will be guided by it. The need is enormous, but so too is the potential of this partnership. It is a privilege to be asked to serve in this role”, said Frigenti.
