I am very happy to announce the appointment of Andrew D.Tomlinson as the new Director of the Quaker United Nations Office in New York.
Andrew comes with twenty years of experience in international finance with Salomon Smith Barney/Citigroup, NY, and S.G. Warburg & Co. London & NY. His work has included projects in Mexico, in the Far East and Latin America. Most recently Andrew founded and managed a socially responsible investment fund.
He has had extensive experience leading and motivating small teams in difficult environments, identifying opportunities, mobilizing resources and building consensus. Each of his business and personal references spoke of Andrewâ€™s commitment to live and model his Quaker values in his work and personal life. He has practiced leadership in a consensus environment while working as a trusted advisor with key decision makers.
Andrew began his career with an academic background in Archaeology and Anthropology at St. Johnâ€™s College, Cambridge, U.K., and a Masters in Oriental Studies at the University of Pennsylvania, and did work as an archaeologist in Europe, the Middle East and India.
Andrew is currently clerk of Chatham-Summit Monthly Meeting and in that role has a track record of facilitating decisions on complex and emotional issues. He has AVP training and has served on Ministry and Counsel, Trustees, Fundraising, Finance and Property Committees.
I think you will find Andrew to be an engaging, energetic, warm and highly intelligent colleague with a great sense of humor, and exceedingly committed to this new leading to put his professional experience and background into Quaker action. He is going to be a tremendous asset to Quaker presence at the United Nations.
Andrew lives with his family in New Jersey and is a citizen of the United Kingdom.
Friday, February 1 is Andrewâ€™s start date. Please join me in welcoming and supporting Andrew in every way possible.
